Event Details

Rebecca Nash presents her new project Redefining Element 78, a brand-new work by the British pianist-composer; commissioned by Bristol Jazz Festival and released on Whirlwind Recordings.

“At the vanguard of innovative and compelling new music” (Downbeat Magazine)

Firmly established as one of the most exciting contemporary jazz composers/band leaders in the UK, pianist Rebecca Nash is now garnering an international reputation for her distinctive sound, full of artistry and heart.

Redefining Element 78 is the follow-up album to Rebecca’s highly-celebrated debut release, the genre-defying Peaceful King. Her music blends bold melodies with electronic elements and grooves, placing them within ethereal harmonic soundscapes.

“Powerful jazz making without a safety net” (Guardian)

The suite is a collection of eight pieces, centred around precious metals – inspired by the periodic table’s Platinum metal family; Platinum, Osmium, Rhodium, Iridium, Ruthenium, and Palladium.

“A substantial artistic achievement; the balance between formal composition and improvisational flair is excellent”
(The JazzMann).

The music’s excitement comes from a creative tension between detailed through-composed sections and large swathes of free improvisation. A deep sense of trust and connection between the musicians, combined with expansive, other-worldly compositions leads to spontaneous, daring, and unpredictable music making.

“One of the freshest, most creative, talents in the UK at this present time” (UK Vibe)
