Mostly Jazz - Jonathan Silk

Drummer and composer Jonathan Silk – dubbed ‘One To Watch’ by Jazzwise magazine – leads his dynamic big band. His original compositions draw on strong influences from mentors and world renowned composers Maria Schneider and Vince Mendoza, along with contemporary New York improvisors Jim Black and David Binney.

Playing music from Jonathan’s latest album, Fragment, released on Stoney Lane Records, the band will perform a suite composed to explore the contrast between the powerful forces of a big band in full cry, and the more delicate touch of orchestral textures.
