Corey Mwamba plays tracks by artists performing at Newcastle Jazz and Improvised Music Festival including pianist Pat Thomas’s tribute to the music of Duke Ellington.
A visionary and virtuoso pianist, Thomas pulls Ellington’s melodies apart like a thread before knitting them together into a joyful patchwork of familiarity and adventure. Plus free-flowing melodies from the bassist and Newcastle resident Andy Champion with his long-standing collaborator saxophonist Graeme Wilson.
