Red Kite

Red Kite is a quintet led by pianist Esben Tjalve joined by the highly skilled musicians and seasoned lights of the UK jazz scene. 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 launched their album on Jellymold “Theory of Colours” in autumn 2018 and will be playing the tracks on this gig.
