In a change to the advertised line up, Keith Tippett will no longer be performing in Leeds and Bristol due to injury.
Matthew and Keith are delighted that Laura Cole will instead perform alongside Matthew Bourne at Sounds Like This Festival in Leeds (12 March) and Kit Downes at Bristol Jazz & Blues Festival (23 March).
Leeds-based pianist, composer Laura Cole joins Matthew fresh from her acclaimed solo double album 'Enough' (Discus) last year. “Cole succeeds in exploring divergent avenues of expression... revealing a quietly emphatic sense of space” – The Wire.
Kit Downes is critically regarded as one of the UK’s outstanding jazz talents and his ECM album Obsidian could have only been made by an improviser of subtle sensibilities. “A lightning musical intelligence” –The Daily Telegraph
