psc trio live!

psc trio was formed in late 2016 to combine the worlds of jazz, rock and classical music via original compositions and arrangements. the compositions are built around the interplay of jazz harmonies, complex rhythms and extensive improvisation; many of them are composed in the long-form compositional style of classical music. the arrangements take well-known songs from pop, rock and jazz and re-build them in a manner similar to our original compositions. the arrangements include songs by michael jackson, guns n' roses, silvio rodriguez, duke ellington and others.

Beats & Pieces Big Band

*First ever gig in North America!* Beats & Pieces Big Band take the big band sound to places it’s never been before, with a distinctive blend of rocking energy and precise dynamics, infectious floor-filling rhythms and widescreen arrangements, generous individual freedom and tight collective interplay. Embracing modern textures and techniques while acknowledging and celebrating their big band lineage, they’ve earned a reputation for a joyful interaction between audience and band, with songs to make you think and dance, laugh and cry. This exciting ensemble led by composer/conductor Ben Cottrell boasts 14 musicians, many of them bandleaders in their own right, with each player’s distinct musical background and individual voice being key to the collective band identity. Now in their 10th year, Beats & Pieces are a rarity in keeping a fairly consistent lineup for so long - especially remarkable for a group this size. Such is the level of trust and friendship across the group that they perform entirely from memory, effortlessly switching between super-tight ensemble playing and generous soloistic expression in the same way as a trio or quartet. A driving force of the vibrant Manchester music scene and one of the most striking ensembles of its kind, the group continues to win new fans and friends across Europe and beyond. Beats & Pieces is not an average ‘big band’ - rather a band that’s big. “A big band with the feel and dynamics of a small group and the force and impact of an orchestra” - AJ Dehany, London Jazz News “Fast becoming one of the foundations of the current UK jazz scene, Beats & Pieces make fun, grooving, high- impact music Mancunian style… continuing the great tradition of UK big bands” - Jez Nelson, BBC Jazz on 3

Peter Van Huffel's GORILLA MASK (Berlin) + Jason Sharp/Nicolas Caloia/Pierre-Luc Simon Trio

Ground-shaking grooves, hammering rhythms and wailing melodies, layered with explosive noholds- barred improvisations: GORILLA MASK is a type of sonic madness roaring with a restless, implacable energy that totters dangerously on the verge of total chaos. They craft spirals of sound in 4 or 5 dimensions, jabbing you in the ribs as they mess with your brain; the ebb and flow of an acutely aware trio of musicians who know what they want and know how to get it. Canadian ex-pat Peter Van Huffel is a saxophonist out of Coltrane, Ayler and Zorn, but he frames his improvisational forays in the context of a trio with hard rock dynamics, riding the churn of Roland Fidezius' frenetic bass and Rudi Fischerlehner's pulsating drum kit like a surfer on the biggest wave he’s ever seen.
