Ethan Iverson Residency: Ethan and the British Composers

+ Alan Benzie Trio

Laura Jurd, Pete Wareham, Tom Herbert, and Seb Rochford – a massively talented group of players in their own right handpicked by Ethan and Laura – join Ethan in an exploration of the art of the composers who define an intrinsically British approach to jazz – from Stan Tracey, Joe Harriott and Tubby Hayes, to Kenny Wheeler, John Taylor and Django Bates.

To set the scene, prior to the concert Ethan interviews one of the most perceptive of writers on music, Richard Williams about the background to this concert; a live edition of Ethan’s online blog, Do the Math.

Support comes from the Alan Benzie Trio, led by the former BBC Scottish Young Jazz Musician of the year and Berklee’s Billboard Award winning pianist and joined by bassist Andrew Robb and drummer Marton Juhasz. Their latest album Little Mysteries has received glowing reviews and won Best Album at the 2018 Scottish Jazz Awards.


Following a decade as pianist and composer with one of the seminal small bands of recent times, The Bad Plus, Ethan Iverson expands horizons with a Kings Place residency that reflects a fascination with the twists and turns of British music – from free improvisation to the art of the British jazz composer, from ragtime to Purcell and Constant Lambert. As eloquent as creator of the blog Do the Math as he is at a piano keyboard, Iverson’s insights into the past, present and future of jazz within a bigger world picture are incisive, revealing, affectionate and controversial by turns. His role as curator brings all these talents together in three days of original and absorbing music-making, in the company with some of the UK scene’s movers and shakers.
