Back with a bang after the bank holiday break, it gives us great pleasure to welcome a band crammed with some of the brightest young stars on the UK jazz scene, lead by the fantastic Phil Meadows!
Phil Meadows Group:
Phil Meadows – sax / compositions
Laura Jurd – trumpet
Elliot Galvin – piano
Conor Chaplin – bass
Simon Roth – drums
Fast emerging as one of the ‘ones to watch’ on the young London scene, saxophonist and composer Phil Meadows bring his great group to the Oxford, playing music from their recent album, ‘Engines of Creation’. With pieces charting tales of cartoonish characters and trivial battles, to marking pivotal situations, arrivals and departures – Meadows’ clever episodic writing balances an eclectic range of contemporary influences, strong improvisational language, and wit. The group showcases players from an important new wave of rising British talent, featuring trumpeter Laura Jurd, pianist Elliot Galvin, bassist Conor Chaplin and drummer Simon Roth.
It’s going to be a real pleasure to hear this group for the very first time at the Oxford, come down and join us for a great night of original music!
As ever doors at 8:30, music from 9; entry only £5.
See you there!
