Peterborough Jazz Club’s first concert of the Autumn Season on Sunday features five amazing young musicians, all of whom are making their debut at the club.
Leading the band and winner of the 2014 Kenny Wheeler Jazz Prize, Misha Mullov-Abbado is an in-demand bass player, composer and arranger based in London.
The Misha Mullov-Abbado Quintet is made up of some of the finest, multi-award-winning musicians and under Misha’s direction the group performs his original compositions and arrangements with a broad variety of influences.
The band performed at the Elgar Room as part of the BBC Proms Lates series in 2014 and has played at many of London’s jazz venues.
Having been recently signed on the Edition record label the band will be recording and releasing its debut album in 2015. In addition, Misha also won the 2014 John Dankworth Jazz Composition Prize and writes for a variety of jazz groups including the quintet, as well as various classical soloists and ensembles.
The band’s repertoire is influenced by a broad spectrum of music in the classical, jazz and pop genres and is also heavily based on swing, funk and other groove-based styles influenced by Ray Brown and Gareth Lockrane, as well as pop giants Stevie Wonder and Earth, Wind & Fire.
Music starts at the Great Northern Hotel at 7.30pm. Tickets £14 at the door
