Event Details

Just East were formed in 1993 and rapidly gained a reputation as one of the first and best groups to explore the connections between jazz and klezmer. Since then the band has developed a sound and approach all their own with a uniquely off-beam take on contemporary music, incorporating world, folk and classical influences in their impressionistic style. Composition and improvisation are seamlessly linked, an approach that has led to favourable comparisons with fusion pioneers Weather Report and prog rock innovators Gong.
“…a restlessly virtuosic display of exceptionally punchy rhythmic precision and tight but flighty improvisation” Jazzwise
“A wonderful amalgamation of inspired writing and stunning playing” The Musician
“…rapid transitions and tight unison playing…a razor-sharp ensemble sound…” Guardian
with Neil Angilley: keys • Jeremy Shoham: sax • Rick Finlay: drums/percussion • Phil Scragg: bass
