Josephine Davies' Satori

— The Be-bop Club
Melodic contemporary jazz trio
time:20:30
price: £9.00

Information:

Satori is a trio led by saxophonist Josephine Davies alongside two of the UK's best rhythm players, Dave Whitford - bass and James Maddren - drums. Their new CD In The Corners Of Clouds recently received an extremely hard to achieve 4 1/2 star review in Downbeat Magazine. "What makes the album so striking is Davies' refusal to abandon melody even as she lets go of defined changes. Her irrepressible tunefulness not only leads the improvisers in fruitful directions but also offers the listener an open door into the music."

Satori is a Buddhist word meaning a moment of presence and inner spaciousness away from the clutter of thought, and reflects Josephine’s fascination with Japanese philosophy. It is her most recent artistic project, in which she demonstrates a continuing evolution of sound and style in both her playing and her writing. The deliberate omission of a chordal instrument as well as the frequent absence of regular harmonic sequence allows the compositions to serve as a loose base for the spontaneity and creativity of the players, giving rise to a uniquely integrated trio sound.
