Event Details

Byron Wallen is ‘one of the most innovative, exciting and original trumpet players alive’ (Jazzwise).

Here he presents his project Black Flag with pianist Nick Ramm.
The music charts the psychological and emotional frontiers of contact between a mother and her son separated by the Atlantic Ocean. It dives into the multi-layered toxic waste caused by global imperialism and colonialism. The creation of lost souls and generations living in socio-economic poverty confined within a mental bubble of paralysis. Explore the shifting balance of power between the urban and rural with a glimpse of light before the Sun.

The polymathic UK trumpeter and composer has been walking a creative line between classic-jazz virtuosity and global conceptual adventurousness since the mid 1990s. ‘Black Flag’ is up there with the inventiveness of all his work. (John Fordham)

A transformed incarnation of works from nearly two decades back, but with video accompaniment (Jazzwise, 2021)
