NYJO Jazz Jam with Tori Freestone
24th November 2019 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Join us for a new instalment of our fantastically successful NYJO Jazz Jam, with saxophonist, flautist, violinist and composer Tori Freestone.
Tori has been creating a stir in the UK and abroad in recent years winning prestigious awards and receiving rave reviews, and 2019 sees her and her trio back in action with an exciting new release ‘El Mar de Nubes’ (‘The Sea of Clouds’) on Whirlwind Recordings. Her unique style takes inspiration from the chordless trios of the moment infused with sounds from her roots in folk, the new release also has Latin and Brazilian elements influenced by spending much of her youth and adult life in the Canary Islands where she composed the album. Tori plays these compositions with a melodic yet robust approach and with her much in demand long time colleagues Tim Giles (drums) and Dave Manington (bass) has an incredible rapport and interaction that gives audiences a buzz and sense of excitement in a live setting.
These sessions are open to all under 18s—parents, passers-by and jazz fans are all welcome to stay and enjoy the music. Tori will kick-start the session with a set at midday, then the floor will open to all those who want to jam (piano and drums will be provided).
