Double Bill: Favourite Animals / Article Xi at Jazz At The Lescar Series at The Lescar Hotel
Two large bands with a shared common ground and featuring a total of 15 of the most creative improvising musicians in the UK, both big jazz festival commissions, mixing composition and improvisation freedom in startling and original ways.
Favourite Animals was commissioned for Lancaster Jazz Festival 2016. Based around the core of Cath's quintet Sloth Racket, and utilising her wonderful graphic scoring techniques, you can expect to hear a fluid and organic mix of big riffs and free improvisation.
'An agreeably spicy goulash of free improvisation, grumpy riffs and bluesy themes' - The Quietus (on Cath's quintet Sloth Racket)
The Lescar Hotel, 303 Sharrowvale Road
