A night of experimental jazz/funk with a healthy dash of proggy goodness!
Prudent Primate are a Bristol-based Progressive Jazz quintet. Fusing influences from dirty funk, modern jazz and psychedelic math/rock. The music takes you on a journey from tight minimal grooves, through colourful, psychedelic soundscapes to infectious, hard hitting riffs. Prudent Primate have been fast making a name for themselves on the fantastic Bristol Modern Jazz scene and had a very exciting 2019 with 3 gigs supporting famed jazz drummer “Billy Cobham” at Ronnie Scott’s in London.
Formed from a shared love of instrumental music, Bristol trio Troika's groove-based sound incorporates improvisation and a fusion of styles. The union of three distinct musical personalities is what creates a unique edge and memorable flavour to their compositions. Funk and rock with a jazz mentality, Troika meld genres and disparate influences into a style that is all their own.
