18-05-2019 Phoenician Blinds at Jazzcafé Dizzy
18 May 2019 @ 21:30€5,00
Phoenician Blinds are a London-based jazz-leaning instrumental quartet with blends of straight-ahead jazz, hip-hop and cinematic soundscapes, drawing influences from artists by the likes of Esbjörn Svensson Trio, Robert Glasper and Avishai Cohen.
‘It’s the classic jazzquartet in a slightly different light. We work in an unusually organic way both live and inthe studio, even in jazz terms. The tunes are mostly written at the piano and thenbrought to the studio where no one is given any musical guidelines, let alone any writtenmusic. We just roll and see what happens which gives the tunes a fresh feel and asense that everyone really is meeting at the centre.’
They’ve been playing around London for three years now making appearances at world renowned venues such as Pizza Express Jazz Club (Soho), Jazz Cafe (Camden), Ronnie Scott’s, Kansas Smitty’s… This will be their debut performance in Rotterdam!
