Uni Jazz directed by Huw Warren: an evening of world and contemporary jazz
16/03/2016, 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Huw Warren directs an exciting evening of contemporary jazz at the university concert hall this coming Wednesday. The programme features a wide variety of contemporary repertoire from classic big band charts to artists such as Kenny Wheeler, Pat Metheny and Radiohead; as well as music from South Africa and Brazil.
Huw Warren is an internationally acclaimed jazz musician and composer, and in his first year as head of jazz ensembles at the school of music he has worked closely with the students in expanding their jazz horizons. In particular the students have been encouraged to work aurally, whilst developing their improvisational skills.
“It’s very important to show Jazz as a living, breathing art form; and to celebrate its diversity with energy and humour” Warren was recently quoted as saying in an interview.
