Birmingham Jazz – Alex Hutton – Magna Carta

January 27, 2017 @ 7:45 pm - 10:00 pm


An original concept, with original music and the most original players in the UK today.  2015 was the 800-year anniversary of the signing of the Magna Carta that this set is dedicated to.  Alex takes inspiration from the countryside around his daily dog walking duties.

The history of England surrounding the Wraysbury and Runnymede area runs deep in the English physic.  The ancient woodland of Ankerwycke shelters a 2000-year-old Yew tree.  Some  2300 years ago looking up at the branches under which Roman soldiers would have gathered (perhaps to discuss the building of aqueducts) – the first thing you think is ‘if the tree could talk – what stories it must have…’

Line Up: Alex Hutton – Piano; Yuri Goloubev – Bass and Asaf Sirkis – Drums
