(Member Event) Prison Break Band @ The Pheasantry

  • Feb 8, 2014 · 7:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Band: Terence Collie on piano, Jac Jones on sax, Joe Sam on electric bass and John Sam on drums.

Following their successful gigs at the firstTW12 Jazz Festival last July and at Jazz Cafe Posk in October, we're happy to say that 'Prison Break' will be launching their new EP - 'And Again' at The Pheasantry. They will be playing original compositions by LJM member Terence Collie. 

'Prison Break' are a quartet of musicians who wanted to break free from playing commercial based music and play music the way they wanted to. It had to be a full blown project

Their music is a marriage of Jazz and Funk with two straight ahead jazz musicians on sax and keyboards and two in the pocket funk brothers on electric bass and drums. Each musician bringing their own feel, groove and musical vocabulary to the table.

The music has a simple remit : original music with tuneful “heads” and lots of room for all to stretch out and but keep the music listenable without having to compromise.

The evening will be opened with a set by the Roger Perrin Trio featuring the young rising star vocalist Billie Wackrill and George Brown Griffith on piano.

£15 in advance through venue on [masked]. Ask to Join Janet's Meetup table.

    Rhythm section was an amazing complement to some very cool compositions and piano playing from Terence. Jac's tenor work in terms of tone and dexterity was original. Why doesn't my MK VI sound like that......?

      Hi Prashanti, great that you have managed to book. I think we will all he eating as it's a Pizza Express venue so it's dinner jazz. Hope that's ok for you.

    Janet, some urgent personal stuff has come up, so don't think I'll get there :-( So I've change my RSVP to no so you don't have to look out for me. But I may try and come last minute if I get things sorted.
