“Aubin is a very promising new guitarist-composer and his freshly imaginative, atmospheric debut stands out from the crowd.”

Book tickets for Aubin Vanns

Opera (number 4 on the June Hot 10 from Jazz FM) is the debut album of jazz guitarist and composer Aubin Vanns. His compositions come from life, reflecting universal emotions surrounding love, death and belonging, weaving together influences from jazz, folk and classical music.

Vanns’ music comes to life through the playing of Alberto Palau on piano, Will Harris on double bass and Jay Davis on drums. Together they explore these settings, these different moods and craft beautiful and sincere music. For this show, the highly in-demand bass player Conor Chaplin will be joining the ensemble.

In Opera, each composition is a song without words, coloured by evocative harmony and textural percussion. Lyrical guitar-led melodies soar above intricate piano harmonies whilst double bass and drums provide further colour as well rhythmic drive.
