Add to Calendar 2017-11-29 20:30 2017-11-29 Double Bill: Taupe / Kapok at Jazz At The Lescar Series at The Lescar Hotel (in association with Dutch Performing Arts, Jazz North, and the Jazz Promotion Network)
Two very different bands, but both sharing a progressive and expansive approach drawing on a wide range of influences.
Kapok bring an infectious rhythmic, fierce live energy, delving into funk rock, classical music, free improv and African music to produce something entirely original. With two appearances at the North Sea Jazz Festival, and winning the Dutch Jazz competition in 2012, the European Jazz Competition in 2013, and an Edison, the Dutch equivalent of a Grammy for their second album.
Equally energetic, but increasing the volume, Taupe are a trio from Newcastle, and bring a brash, razor sharp polyrhythmic intensity and exploratory approach, mixing improvisation with electronics to produce something wholly original and vibrant. If you love Roller Trio or Trio VD you won't want to miss Taupe. Free jazz meets math metal, hip hop grooves, post-bop and skronk.
