Luxembourg has been building a reputation as an exciting and dynamic centre for jazz where, through international influences and homegrown invention, players are forging their own creative paths. This March, Edinburgh Jazz & Blues Festival are presenting a series of concerts and collaborations from leading musicians form both Luxembourg and Scotland. This special concert at Mackintosh Church in Glasgow shines the spotlight on two pianists who are really pushing the boundaries.
Dock In Absolute | Dave Milligan
Thu 23 March, 8pm | The Mackintosh Church | Tickets £13
Already feted in major festivals around the world, pianist and composer, Jean-Philippe Koch, combines strong classical music influences into a new jazz conception, packed with fascinating composition. Romance and passion are at the heart of the music, and immediately striking is how formidably certain the music is rich in twists and turns in mood: from lyrical to wild. Led by Jean-Philippe Koch (piano) with David Kintziger (bass) Robert Ivanov(drums).
Dave Milligan solo
“A whirlwind tour de force” The Independent
