'Tails from Wales' - Huw Warren & Friends @ Cardiff University, Wales
Huw Warren - piano
Iain Ballamy - saxophones
Steve Watts – bass
Martin France – drums
In an exclusive premiere for the Jazz at the University series, leading UK composer/pianist Huw Warren presents 'More Tails for Wales' a new project of original music, with long time collaborators Ballamy, Watts and France.
As one of the most high profile Welsh jazz musicians, Warren has always been interested in taking inspiration from both his Gower upbringing and his current domicile in the heart of Snowdonia. More Tails for Wales focuses on new music with direct connections to Wales.
All four musicians have been at the cutting edge of the UK and European jazz scenes since the early 1990’s, and have worked extensively together in various combinations. Ballamy and Warren record together for ECM as part of the Quercus trio, and France and Warren have recorded together extensively both as Perfect Houseplants and on a string of Huw’s solo records.
