Misha Mullov-Abbado opens Music in Pinner series
Misha Mullov-Abbado, performing with James Davison’s and Callum Au’s Quintet-à-Tête has opened the most recent Music in Pinner series.
St John’s Pinner Parish Church opened its latest Music in Pinner Series with a fantastic jazz concert, enjoyed by many local residents.
On October 21, the church hosted James Davison’s and Callum Au’s Quintet-à-Tête, inspired by Clark Terry and Bob Brookmeyer, for a terrific evening of inventive and skilful jazz.
A spokesperson for the church said: “[Callum’s] valve and slide trombones blended beautifully with James’s flugelhorn in the fine ensemble sections, with fresh improvisations all around.
“Sam Watts showed extraordinary pianism, while Misha Mullov-Abbado’s bass was an ever-present source of depth and imagination, and Matt Skelton was deft and resourceful at the drums.”
Winner of the 2014 Kenny Wheeler Jazz Prize, Misha Mullov-Abbado is an in-demand bass player, composer and arranger based in London.
