Jakub Klimiuk Quintet
23 March @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm£10
Featuring in-demand musicians, associated with the Guildhall School of Music & Drama and Trinity Laban, Jakub Klimiuk Quintet combines 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.
Members of the band have performed at venues like Vortex, 606 or Ronnie Scott’s and have individually worked with Martin Speake, Tom Challenger, NYJO, Morsyca, Donovan Haffner and Húrra among others.
Quintet’s EP entitled „Reluctance” is a reflection on the uncertainty of current times, a way to express intertwining feelings of hope and skepticism. The album takes listeners on a journey through different sound worlds, from modern jazz inspired by New York scene to hip-hop grooves.
