Church Of Sound presents : Orphy Robinson All Stars | Bobby Hutcherson Songbook
St James the Great, London
Thursday, 29 Sep 2016 at 7:00pm - Friday, 30 Sep 2016 at 12:00am
Church Of Sound is back from its summer hiatus with an event that means a lot to us.
We had been thinking to do the Bobby Hutcherson songbook for a while, but his recent passing urged us to make it happen and give his music the homage it deserves.
To cover this amazing repertoire, we have got the immense honor to welcome the great Vibe and Marimba player Orphy Robinson.
Orphy Robinson is one of the major figures of the jazz scene - he has released records on Blue Note and played with Don Cherry, David Murray, Henry Threadgill, Courtney Pine, Jazz Warriors and Andy Shepherd.
For this special occasion he will be joined by some of the best London based jazz musicians:
Tony Kofi - Alto Sax
Robert Mitchell - Piano
Moses Boyd - Drums
Nubya Garcia - Saxophone
Byron Wallen - Trumpet
Rowland Sutherland - Flutes
Dudley Phillips- Double bass
Orphy Robinson – Vibes / Marimba
Because Bobby Hutcherson’s repertoire is so vast and varied we thought that one set of covers wouldn’t do it justice, so we will have two 45 minute sets covering some of his best tunes.
The tunes that we have selected are mainly from the Blue Note catalogue, either as a leader or sideman.
The albums we looked at were ‘Components’, ‘Stick up!’ , ‘San Francisco’,’Montara’, Knucklebean’ and more.
We will announce the track listing closer to the date.
Curator for this show, Lexus Blondin will be spinning records before, during & after bands.
We will be serving food from the start, so don't hesitate to come early to get in the mood.
All proceeds from the booking fees will be going to Calais Action, via Party for the People.
Peace, Love and Harmony
