Misha Gray's Prehistoric Jazz Quintet at Ribble Valley, April 7th

Ribble Valley Jazz and Blues Club continue their varied and exciting monthly gig programme on Friday 7th April with Misha Gray and his Prehistoric Jazz Quintet.

The Manchester jazz scene is teeming with exciting musicians and ensembles at the moment!

Line-up: Nick Walters - trumpet, Kyran Matthews - saxophone, Misha Gray - piano, Hugo Harrison - bass, Johnny Hunter - drums.

The Prehistoric Jazz Quintet is a group of well-established young jazz musicians, led by composer and pianist Misha Gray, whose original compositions explore these origins of music. Their style relies heavily on the musicians’ spontaneity and improvising skills, and the result is a lively combination of intense, intriguing and unique textures. Expect tracks from their new album, “Origin of the Species”
