A joint promotion with Jazz At The Lescar, working together to bring the best touring musicians to Sheffield. A brand new collaboration between a true legend of US and European jazz and two of the most exciting players on the UK scene.

US-born but for many years a resident in Amsterdam, Michael Moore is one of the most in-demand reeds players around, as a bandleader and also a sideman for heavy-hitting names including Gerry Hemingway and Dave Douglas, and as a key member of the renowned Instant Composers Pool Orchestra. This will be Michael Moore’s first UK visit in twenty years in a small group setting, and a long overdue chance to catch him in full, free and melodic flow.

He’ll be joined by bass player John Pope and drummer Johnny Hunter, creative and vibrant musicians and an ideal match for this music.

John Pope is an adventurous and powerful bass player, a leader of his own fiery and dynamic quintet and member of acclaimed Newcastle based trio Archipelago.

Johnny Hunter is a free-wheeling drummer with a loose and interactive style, and a musician with strong links to Sheffield. He leads his own quartet as well as touring and playing extensively with bands including Sloth Racket, Revival Room and Nishla.

Anything could happen as these three expansive musical minds tackle original compositions in a highly charged programme of intuitive, spontaneous, vital and captivating music. Unmissable and unique, don’t miss this gig.
