Stuart McCallum of Cinematic Orchestra is set to appear at The Continental, Preston this Sunday, February 3.
From jazz beginnings to DJ culture, Stuart McCallum’s music is ‘alternative jazz’ – a distillation of influences creating a sound that is concentrated and distinctive.
Not wanting to hide behind over complicated harmonic and rhythmical structures, angular and forgettable melodies, Stuart’s music is a new hybrid of composition, production and performance that embraces simple, memorable melodies, bass lines and drum beats, with electronica and improvisation enriched by elegant orchestral writing.
As well as working with legendary UK saxophonist, John Surman, Stuart has also performed and recorded with some of the most prominent jazz artists of today, including Kenny Wheeler, Mike Gibbs, Gwilym Simcock, Tim Garland, Laurent Robin and Laurent De Wilde.
Stuart will appear at The Continental on South Meadow Lane, Preston at 8pm.
Tickets are priced at £10.
