CONVERGENCE @ The Cockpit, London

Shinya Fukumori – drums
BJ Cole – pedal steel guitar
Iain Ballamy – saxophones
Chris Montague – guitar

For one performance only, four exceptional musicians come together for a unique musical collaboration. Each bring their compositional language to a point of convergence from which new interpretations of songs emerge. The uncommon format of pedal steel guitar, saxophone, electric guitar and drums promise soundscapes that will inspire and surprise.

The programme will feature compositions by all four musicians. Yokohama Calling are very excited to be facilitating this unique meeting of musical talent and the possibilities it will bring.

The concert, tagged ‘CONVERGENCE’ will be the only performance by this group and must not be missed!

Fukumori is among the most poetic of drummers, his light touch lending only the necessary textures and rhythms: reminiscent of the late, great drummer Paul Motian, a frequent contributor to ECM recordings.
