Jazz: Jakub Klimiuk Quintet
November 16 @ 8:00 pm - 10:30 pmFrom £14
Jakub Klimiuk Quintet is a new project combining modern jazz with influences from Scandinavian improvised music, Eastern European folk and contemporary classical pieces. The resultant repertoire, consisting of original compositions, is a highly energetic mix of scripted forms and free improvisation, drawing from various genres but at the same time staying deeply rooted in the jazz tradition.
The quintet’s EP entitled “Reluctance” is a reflection on the uncertainty of current times, a way to express intertwining feelings of hope and scepticism. The album takes the listener on a journey through different sound worlds, from modern jazz inspired by New York scene to hip-hop grooves.
Guitarist Jakub was born in Poland, and studied at the prestigious Guildhall School of Music & Drama in London. Jakub is an adventurous composer and an improviser who also has extensive experience working as a side-man with various artists and projects, including prominent figures like Krystyna Stańko and Jonas Kullhammar. In his work, Jakub is focused on blurring the lines between genres and experimenting with musical forms
The band features in-demand alumni of the Guildhall School of Music & Drama and Trinity Laban. Despite their young age, the musicians have performed at venues like Vortex, 606 and Ronnie Scott’s and individually worked with Martin Speake, Tom Challenger, NYJO, Morsyca, Donovan Haffner and Húrra.
