The best original jazz and new music
First Friday of every month
Decembert 6th: Peace On Earth + Mike Chillingworth Quartet
We bow out of 2019 with a serious lineup!
Peace On Earth:
Robert Stillman - sax
PEACE ON EARTH is a band comprised of saxophonist Robert Stillman, drummer Tom Skinner, and bassist Tom Herbert. The three musicians first played together in 1999 when Stillman was in London supposedly studying English literature, but actually frequenting the city’s various jam sessions. Fast forward 20 years, through various projects (Hello Skinny, Jade Fox, Sons of Kemet, the Invisible, Polar Bear, Acoustic Ladyland) and collaborations (Peter Zummo, Luke Temple, Ghostpoet, Kit Downes, Kano, Grizzly Bear, Matthew Herbert), the three unite as Peace on Earth to collectively channel their various life experiences into a musical initiation of the ideal their band-name suggests.
Mike Chilingworth Quartet:
Mike Chillingworth - sax
Ivo Neame - piano
Tom Farmer - bass
Jon Scott - drums
An incredible musician, composer and long-time friend of the Con Cellar, Mike Chillingworth presents his new stellar quartet!
While trapped for several days on a bus with fifty children Mike decided to escape his reality the only way he knew how – by immersing himself in a mathematically torturous rhythmic prison of his own design. Over the following months he attempted to make sense of the relentless polyrhythmic ear-worms which had by now burrowed deep in to his grey matter. An accord was reached, call it Stockholm syndrome if you like, so get ready as he prepares to present the fruits of his tortured psyche, with the help of some of his favourite musicians/inmates.
“Really special … Very complicated but full of wit and melody too. Clever Sod.” Liam Noble
