VAN MORRISON'S ASTRAL WEEKS WITH ISHMAEL ENSEMBLE & WALDO'S GIFT
This February we invite two of the UK's most exciting crossover jazz-influenced bands to perform a re-work of Van Morrison's 1968 magnum opus 'Astral Weeks'.
Combining disparate influences from across jazz, folk and blue-eyed soul, the record was a slow burner and far from an immediate success. It baffled critics and fans alike but grew in stature over the decades to reach towering cult status.
Both Waldo's Gift and Ishmael Ensemble have been breaking the boundaries of where jazz, classical and electronic instrumentation meet improvised music to outstanding effect. This new sonic adventure is a great opportunity to see two rising talents present a unique take on a cult classic.
