EMULSION VIII is tomorrow night!


Tomorrow, Emulsion goes back to the Vortex Jazz Club where it all started in 2012… with a stellar line up (see below) … we’ll playing some new music I’ve written specially for the occasion, and a version of ‘I.F.’ from my latest album ‘Ninety Degrees Gravity’… Here we are playing it in Ireland last weekend:

I.F. played by MY IRIS at Galway Jazz Festival 2019

I’ll also be playing an arrangement of a Marcel Dupre prelude with Ross Stanley – something we’ve been working on a little while…

The band are also playing some brilliant pieces by Nikki Iles, Hans Koller and Robert Mitchell…
