Trinity Buoy Wharf Live!: Grand Union Orchestra All Stars
- Trinity Buoy Wharf
The creators of Trinity Buoy Wharf, popular arts neighbourhood in East London, are launching their new events series this May, Trinity Buoy Wharf Live!, featuring Jazz Wednesdays: six jazz nights on the River Thames.
To launch Jazz Wednesdays, Trinity Buoy Wharf Live! kicks off with East London’s genre-defying Grand Union Orchestra.
The hallmarks of great jazz are the same today as a century ago, when it emerged from America’s Deep South in New Orleans. Uniting musicians of all races, styles and instruments, jazz remains most spontaneous and original of musical styles, enjoyed by millions around the world. Likewise, Grand Union Orchestra, from its base in the heart of East London, thrills audiences with the virtuoso talents of professional first-generation migrant musicians, creating a truly pioneering world jazz sound.
For Trinity Buoy Wharf Live! launch event, Grand Union Orchestra is assembling an all-star band from its core roster of improvising musicians under the direction of composer/arranger Tony Haynes (piano, trombone) including: Shanti Jayasinha (trumpet, flugelhorn), Louise Elliott (flute, tenor saxophone), Zhu Xiao Meng (gu zheng – Chinese harp), Yousuf Ali Khan (tabla, dholak),Carlos Fuentes (Latin percussion), Gerry Hunt (guitar, violin, soprano sax), Andres Lafone (bass guitar) and Paul Clarvis (drums).
"These guys know that what brings people together is something shared.. the Grand Union Orchestra’s music makes you feel alive, makes you think and makes you long for a better world" On the Edge World Jazz Festival review
