Moonlight Saving Time with Emily Wright
Singer Emily Wright's remarkable group offers a fresh take on the jazz repertoire. Including influences from drum and bass, latin and classical music, Moonlight Saving Time has already created a stir at the Brecon, Cheltenham, Manchester and Oxford jazz festivals and Jez Nelson featured their debut EP on his BBC 'Jazz on 3' programme. Supporting Emily as leader/ singer are Nick Malcolm, trumpet; Dale Hambridge, piano; Will Harris, bass and Mark Whitlam, drums.
Winners of the 2013 Emerging Excellence award from the Musicians Benevolent Fund, Moonlight Saving Time combine bold improvisation with atmospheric grooves and world rhythms to create a unique sound in contemporary jazz. With influences ranging from Chick Corea to Massive Attack, the band offer a strikingly fresh take on established jazz repertoire, as well as thoughtful and melodic original compositions.
