“Corrie is a ferociously independent breed of artist who forges his own musical path, which renders his music exceedingly unique while being shamelessly accessible to all.” Martin Hummel, Director of Ubuntu Music
Music Spoken Here presents Corrie Dick “Sun Swells”
The Marrs Bar, Worcester
Thursday 2nd November, 8PM doors, 8:30 start
Multi-instrumentalist and composer Corrie Dick has recorded on piano, vocals, synth, guitar and trumpet but is best known for his work on drums, at the rhythmic epicenter of a new era of British jazz. A close and long-term collaborator with trumpeter Laura Jurd, including the Mercury Prize shortlisted Dinosaur, he has also studied the traditional and modern music of Zimbabwe, Madagascar, Benin, Ghana, Morocco and DR Congo alongside his prodigious creative companion, guitarist Rob Luft.
Corrie released his second album Sun Swells on the Ubuntu label last year. In Corrie’s own words:
“This is outsider jazz; it’s extremely listenable music that has lots of very current, familiar ingredients but put together in a way you may not be familiar with. Some key elements include soaring folkish melodies, Scandinavian free jazz, 90s-kid grooves, a playful shunning of conventional jazz roles and form, stillness, turbulence, beautiful and ugly-pretty sounds, warmth, stunning lyrical imagery, climate change, feminism, and eclectic guests.”
We really are in for a treat on Thursday as Corrie brings his full sextet including Caius Williams (bass), James Kitchman (guitar), Joe Wright (sax), Huw Warren (keys) and Rebecka Edlund (vocals).
