Cath Roberts and Anton Hunter (aka Ripsaw Catfish) present their ensembles Article XI and Favourite Animals, gathering together to play new music by the two bandleaders. Article XI was assembled for Anton’s mjf originals commission at Manchester Jazz Festival 2014. Favourite Animals formed for Cath’s Artist In Residence/Headline Artist commission at Lancaster Jazz Festival 2016. Featuring artists from across the European creative music scene, the two bands share many members and much common ground, while the music explores two composers’ different approaches to writing for improvisers.
There’ll be a workshop looking at 'How to put the creative into creative jazz orchestra’ at 3pm. Sign up for details firstname.lastname@example.org
