Jazz pianist and composer Zoe Rahman is to perform with the Inner City Ensemble at Warrington’s Pyramid Arts Centre on the 21st October.
Described by the Observer as “a remarkable pianist by any standard”, Zoe Rahman has firmly established herself as one of the brightest stars on the contemporary jazz scene.
A vibrant and highly individual artist, her style is deeply rooted in jazz yet reflects her classical background, British/Bengali heritage and her very broad musical taste.
Known for her powerful technique, wide-ranging imagination and exuberant performances, Zoe has become a highly sought-after musician, recently working with the likes of George Mraz, Courtney Pine and Jerry Dammer’s Spatial AKA Orchestra.
She is a winner of the prestigious U.K. Parliamentary Jazz Award and has previously been nominated for the Mercury Music Prize.
For this third edition of the Jazz Directors Series, presented by Band on the Wall, Rahman is performing with the Inner City Ensemble, an evolving nine-piece group of the U.K.’s most promising emerging professional musicians, selected through an open call application process.
The current line up is: Aleksandra Topczewska – alto saxophone; Arnaud Guichard – tenor saxophone; Daniel Mitchell – trombone; Faye MacCalman’s clarinet; Hanna Mbuya’s tuba; James Brady’s trumpet; Maria Rehakova’s flute; Roz McDonald â€“ bass; and Yusuf Ahmed’s drums.
