Meraki + Early Bird Band

About

The three musicians who form Meracki effortlessly travel through the various moods, emotions and complexities of pianist Jacky Naylor's original contemporary music, whilst dynamically interacting with each other.

Naylor's debut album 'Rough Boundaries', for which he won the coveted Dankworth Prize, was released in 2016 and featured him working with the Birmingham Jazz Orchestra. Bassist Nick Jurd regularly tours internationally playing with Soweto Kinch, Trope, The Destroyers and Hansu-Tori, and freelances regularly around the UK jazz scene. Completing the trio, drummer Jonathan Silk has released two critically acclaimed albums with his own big band and string orchestra, and has worked with world-renowned composers Vince Mendoza and Maria Schneider as well as a host of other nationally and internationally renowned musicians. This is a trio of the highest creative quality.

A support set comes from the Early Bird Band, led by pianist and composer Paul Edis, and made up of some of the most talented young jazz musicians from the North East. Their repertoire includes straight-ahead classics form the Great American Songbook alongside original material written by the band.
