Arun Ghosh Quintet

Fri 20 October 2017

Autumn 2017 | Concert

Clarinettist Arun Ghosh is delighted to return to Liverpool with his band, as part of his Autumn album tour. Winner of 'Jazz Instrumentalist of the Year' at the 2014 Parliamentary Jazz Awards, Ghosh is a leading light on UK and international jazz scenes, captivating audiences and critics with his passionate and dynamic performance style, eloquent musical expression and a charismatic rock 'n' roll spirit.

New album, But Where Are You Really From? (released October 2017) reveals a move towards song-like structures and psychedelic textures; a sonic space where Alice Coltrane meets The Doors, Primal Scream and The Velvet Underground. Propelled by a hard driving rhythm section, Ghosh's celebrated lyricism, melodic outpourings and freewheeling improvisations become passionate and intensely emotional 'songs without words'.

Suitable for ages 11+
