About Housewarming Sessions: The Kate Luxmoore Group
Free jazz in the new performance space at Symphony Hall.
A clarinettist with “ a velveteen tone and lithe style of playing” (Songlines)
Kate Luxmoore, has been interpreting what she terms the "English Songbook" through a fusion of jazz and urban grooves, marrying together harmonies and melodies of English folk with the rolling, poly-rhythms of yoruba grooves to create an upbeat british sound.
Kates travels and musical exploration have taken her far and wide, through classical, contemporary and traditional music. Her second album, Unquiet Grave, gives voice to her unique take on English folk tunes. Music with a sense of Englishness at its heart – but with a shared world vision.
"this is original work, English jazz sounds, pure British in nature". Oliver Weindling - Vortex Jazz Club
