Charukesi with Martin Speake
About Jazz Lates
Jazz Lates is a series of intimate Jazz events that take place in our wonderful living room. On Friday 18th October it is with great pleasure that we welcome Charukesi with Martin Speake to the living room stage.
About the artist
For over 20 years Martin Speake has had various projects exploring his interest in Indian/Arabic/Turkish music and blending it with his Jazz sensibilities.
Charukesi tonight features Alyson Cawley on tenor saxophone, Hannes Riepler on guitar and Will Glaser on drums and percussion alongside the leader’s alto saxophone and compositions.
The music reflects his interest in improvising with rhythm and melody rather than harmony and is groove based and trance like. Melodic framework of Ragas taken from Indian tradition and rhythmic cycles from the Arabic and Turkish musical world are combined to make an original sound featuring three generations of players bringing their own unique interpretations to the whole.
