Angel Bat Dawid
Corey Mwamba presents highlights from Chicago vocalist and clarinet player Angel Bat Dawid's set at the London Jazz Festival, plus new music from viola player Mat Maneri.
Angel Bat Dawid brought a free and spiritual jazz sound forged in her hometown of Chicago to the Clore Ballroom last November for the London Jazz Festival. Corey Mwamba presents the closing section of her set alongside some sage advice from Angel on the importance of listening.
Viola player Mat Maneri’s calm and reflective playing is informed by the vibratoless tone of Baroque music and the melodic language of Paul Bley; we hear music from his new quartet album Dust. Plus vocalist Fay Victor presents her reaction to the modern way of life together with cellist Marika Hughes and saxophonist Darius Jones and a live recording from British bassist Barry Guy’s 70th birthday concert.
