Malija – Lockheart/Noble/Høiby Trio

Event Has Passed

Last Show: Sunday 9 th December 2018

PizzaExpress Jazz Club (Soho)

This sophisticated, genre-bending trio will be performing music from their new CD 'Instinct' along with repertoire from their previous album 'The Day I Had Everything' on Edition Records. Driven by a commitment to in-the-moment improvisation and collective musical banter, the band’s idiomatic sweep through bluegrass, tango, abstract grooves and shimmering landscapes is delivered with flair and playful abandon. Three distinctive compositional voices, all hugely influential in the London scene, combine to form a unique sounding group.
