This unique collaboration concert and album launch sees pioneering Scottish ensemble Trio HLK, Richard Harrold (piano and composer), Ant Law (guitar) and Richard Kass (drums), team up with Dame Evelyn Glennie, the first person to successfully create and sustain a full-time career as a solo percussionist.
HLK's music heavily deconstructs and reconstructs jazz standards, creating intricate new pieces with complex frameworks for improvisation. Their pieces are strewn with rhythmic and harmonic tricks, and their performances deliver an explosive interactive tour de force that distorts the meeting point of the composed and the improvised.
Presented by The Queen's Hall

“One of the grooviest, hippest young bands in the city…rhythmically and melodically a great combination of subtlety and strength"
