Play Out

University of Birmingham, B15 2TT

Play Out explores the improvisational nature of Indian and Jazz music.

Sampad presents Play Out with the distinctive Indian saxophone sounds of leading musician Jesse Bannister, MOBO Award Winner 2012 for Best Jazz Act, Zoe Rahman on piano, Kenny Higgins on bass, Eddie Hick on drums.

SPECIAL 2-FOR-1 TICKET OFFER JUST ANNOUNCED! SEE DETAILS BELOW.

Play Out explores the improvisational nature of Indian and Jazz music through a captivating creative partnership that crosses musical and geographical borders.

The event is part of the Bramall Festival of Music a two-week programme of concerts and events celebrating the completion of the Bramall Music Building, home to the state-of-the-art Elgar concert hall and the new residence for the University’s world-renowned Department of Music.

At the heart of Play Out lies Jesse Bannister’s distinctive saxophone sound, honed from years of absorbing influences from Indian classical music, jazz and contemporary composition.

Jesse has performed on stages throughout the world. His artistic collaborators include Liverpool Philharmonic, City of London Sinfonia, Mercury music prize-winner Talvin Singh, Grammy winner Sukhwinder Singh, and the Hallé Orchestra. He has also performed at sampad’s much-loved Mid-day Mantra series.

Jesse will be joined by Zoe Rahman, a brilliant pianist and rising star on the contemporary jazz scene.

Recent winner of the MOBO for Best Jazz Act 2012, Zoe’s style is deeply rooted in jazz but also reflects her classical background, British/Bengali heritage and her very broad musical taste.

Powerfully original drummer, Eddie Hick, and dynamic bass-player, Kenny Higgins, will also join the collaboration,
giving Birmingham audiences a special opportunity to hear a cool musical dialogue between saxophone and percussion.
