Noah Stoneman presents freestyle jazz
18 May @ 8:00 pm - 10:30 pm
Noah presents a monthly night of freestyle jazz at Karamel.
Band line-up to follow.
Noah Stoneman is a 22 year old pianist and composer from North London. He is currently studying at the Royal Academy of music and is adept at a wide range of musical idioms. What binds these different languages together is improvisation; an art which Noah aims to master throughout his career. He regularly performs as a sideman for some of the finest musicians across the UK from all generations.
As a composer, Noah takes influence from all walks of music both contemporary and traditional. He is equally adept at subtly emotive synthesiser world-building as well as classic orchestral/chamber themes inspired by timeless predecessors. Noah’s music has been performed at music festivals and venues around the world, including Brainchild festival, Manchester Jazz Festival, La Petite Halle in Paris and Somersby Festival in Lisbon. Over the last 3 years he has taken up contemporary classical composition tuition with Ruth Byrchmore and Alex Hills at the Royal Academy of Music. Noah has composed and arranged for myriad ensembles ranging from Piano Trio, Big Band, Improvising Octet, String Quartet and recently had 2 original song cycles for piano and Opera Soprano performed at the RAM ‘Students Create’ festival. In 2022 Noah composed the original score for the mini series ‘Life in Love’ directed by Abel Rubinstein, which was broadcast on ITV and went on to be shown at the BFI London Film Festival.
In October 2021, Noah recorded his debut album at Livingston Studios, London, with his trio of Will Sach on bass and Luca Caruso on drums. Comprised of all original material and produced by long-time mentor and ECM recording artist Kit Downes, the record offers a fresh poetic statement that realises Stoneman’s compositional identity.
Doors open 7pm, music from 8pm.
