Red Kite

Red Kite is a sextet led by pianist Esben Tjalve joined by the highly skilled musicians and seasoned lights of the UK jazz scene: Fulvio Sigurta (trumpet), Ross Hughes (bass clarinet and Sax), Hannes Riepler (guitar), Jasper Høiby (bass) and Tim Giles (drums).

The music is a seamless blend of electronic and acoustic sounds set in a jazz format combining the complex with accessibility and the composed with the improvised. The compositions create a musical universe that varies from cinematic meditative soundscapes to groovy noir tunes with reminiscent echoes of Miles Davis “Bitches Brew”. As a result the structure of the music allows for the improvised parts to interact and co-exist with the written material leaving the individual musician space to create their own sound within the band. 

Red Kite is launching their new the new album "Theory of Colours" at the Vortex last September and this gig is part of the tour around England.
