Elephant 9 is a musical monster. The Norwegian jazz rock trio play with strong echoes of Miles Davis’ electric period. Dazzling and daring, their music is undeniably compelling, moving from powerful moments to subtle, soaring soundscapes, and their breathless playing is born out of concise and intuitive musicianship. “Music that is lush and mysterious, but still inherently groovy” Jazz Man. Led by saxophonist Harry Weir, Blue Boar Brass are a brass band with a twist. Influenced by the Hypnotic Brass Ensemble and El Michels Affair, this dynamic quintet plays with huge drive and attack and their set includes originals as well as covers of songs by Björk, Kanye West and System of a Down.
