Kevin Figes Septet
The music for this septet (originally an octet) draws not only upon jazz influences (Kenny Wheeler, David Binney) but also a lot from the progressive jazz/rock scene of the seventies (Soft Machine, Ian Carr) and just plain progressive (Gentle Giant). Through the use of electric bass and additional keyboard sounds, each piece the band performs will represent a little musical journey from jazz history. The line-up was inspired by Kenny Wheeler, to use wordless vocals and treat the vocals as horns to play with and in counterpoint to the two saxes.
