A first and final gig at NQ Jazz for vibraphonist Corey Mwamba, one of the scene's most innovative and vibrantly creative improvising musicians, mixing jazz with influences from folk and electronic music. Corey is retiring from public performance, but he's not going quietly!
This quartet NTH, features three of northern England's most vital musicians, bassist Andy Champion, pianist Laura Cole, and drummer Johnny Hunter. A powerful and energetic performer Corey was nominated 5 times in US magazine Downbeat's Vibraphone Rising Star category. The music for this gig will come from a recent collection (s)kin, as well as some new music written especially for this group. Corey has worked internationally with a range of incredible improvising musicians including Sylvain Darrifourcq, Valentin Ceccaldi, Lucian Ban, Robert Mitchell, Orphy Robinson, Simon Roth, and Martin Archer.
