Ivo Neame and Octet in Concert

Duration:
1 hour, 30 minutes
First broadcast:
Monday 15 October 2012

As part of 'Piano Season on the BBC', Jez Nelson presents pianist Ivo Neame performing with his octet. Neame is a member of the Loop Collective and has played in many of the leading young British bands of the last five years, including Empirical, Kairos Quartet and Phronesis and, on saxophone, in Jim Hart's Gemini. His reputation as a composer and bandleader is gathering - following his quartet's debut album Caught In The Light of Day (2009), this performance features intricate but melodically strong music from his octet's new recording. The ensemble features Jon Shenoy and Shabaka Hutchings on clarinet, saxophonists Tori Freestone and Jason Yarde, Jim Hart (vibes), Jasper Hoiby (bass) and Dave Hamblett on drums.

Presenter: Jez Nelson
Producer: Peggy Sutton & Phil Smith
