Tomorrow’s Warriors presents JAM String Collective
20 October @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm£5 – £10
Tomorrow’s Warriors presents JAM String Collective. A Contemporary Jazz String trio playing original compositions and arrangements featuring Julia Dos Reis (viola), Annalise Lam (violin), and Miranda Lewis-Brown (cello).
The trio plays their own re-imaginings of works by jazz heavy weights, such as Ornette Coleman, Thelonious Monk, and Kenny Wheeler, as well as their own compositions. The arrangements leave lots of space for moments of freeness, with a heavy focus on interaction and improvisation.
Julia and Miranda met in 2015 through Gary Crosby’s (OBE) Tomorrow’s Warriors Jazz String project, StringTing, with whom they have gigged extensively across the UK and Europe. They have toured with larger Warrior ensembles such as Peter Edward’s NuCivilisation Orchestra, and Jazz Jamaica, as well as played their own gigs – as a trio and quartet – in venues such as Ronnie Scott’s, Pizza Express Club Soho, The Purcell Room SBC. In 2019 they supported legendary saxophonist, Steve Williamson, in a UK tour.
In more recent years Annalise also joined the larger collective of StringTing, first meeting Julia at a Warrior’s workshop led by jazz violinist extraordinaire, Benet McClean. Julia and Annalise struck up a relationship which continued through their Masters studies at Guildhall, where they would often meet to jam ideas, many of which have continued into JAM. The JAM String Collective brings the trio together in a new project, based in London and Bristol. In 2022 they released a live performance of Kenny Wheeler’s classic Kind Folk. Treating the group as a collective, they have plans to involve other instrumentalists and performers for future projects.
Doors open at 7pm, music starts at 8pm. Please book a ticket in advance.
