 Renowned UK jazz quartet Empirical return to Kings Place for the launch of their much-awaited fifth album, Connection.

Known for their risk-taking creative music and strong live performances, the new album explores how the band musically connect with one another and with its audience.

Recorded after a week of nightly live sessions at London’s iconic Foyles bookshop, the residency gave the band the unique opportunity to finesse the material in front of a live audience.

Connection is the first album exclusively featuring Empirical’s core personnel and aims to capture the essence of the band’s live sound.

‘A fresh attack… the interplay between ripe sax and cool vibes bares a strong personal stamp.’ ★★★★ Financial Times

‘While previous albums have featured several guests, Connection focuses on the core quartet delivering a dynamic set of originals that match an updated take on the angular 1960s New Thing sound with modern-day themes hinting at the tensions and stresses of modern life.’ Jazzwise
