About the event
We welcome acoustic piano trio ‘Yetii’ for this very special gig featuring special guest, UK jazz great Iain Ballamy.
Coming out of the northern European jazz tradition – audiences might be reminded of the likes of Ebjörn Svensson – Yetii captivate with beautiful melodies underpinned by imaginative but tuneful harmonies.
The Festival has a tradition of presenting national and international jazz stars with younger Bristol players, and this is no exception. Following the success of a recent collaboration, they are joined by one of the most imaginative saxophonists of his generation. Iain Ballamy has a BBC Jazz award, is listed in the BBC’s ‘100 jazz greats’, has recorded for ECM (the worldwide pinnacle in terms of jazz record labels) and has written soundtracks for two films directed by Dave McKean.
Expect an intimate set combining the original music of both Iain and Yetii.
Iain Ballamy – saxophone
Alex Veitch – piano
Chris Jones – double bass
