From Howard Assembly Room...
Keyboard wizard Uri Caine first made his name as sideman to improvisers including John Zorn and the virtuosic trumpeter Dave Douglas. Across 22 albums as a leader, he’s since carved out a niche of his own as a sonic adventurer with projects that place him at the forefront of today’s jazz world.
Here he returns to his roots in a duo format with his long term collaborator Dave Douglas, playing a specially selected collection of songs, hymns, and improvisations, ahead of a CD release in summer 2014 but available while on tour.
Tickets are priced £15 and can be booked through the Howard Assembly Room website.
