Speak to me of Love, Speak to me of Truth // Billy Harper + London Quartet + Choir // Church of Sound
St James the Great, London
Friday, 16 Nov 2018
19:30 – 23:50
Without a doubt this is the most exciting gig we’ve ever had the chance to put on. It is with great excitement that we can now announce that bossman Billy Harper will return to St James the Great Church on November 16th 2018.
As if that wasn’t good news enough, we have also had the fortune to curate a unique London quartet & 12 piece choir alongside him:
Trumpet: Yelfris Valdes
Grand Piano: Robert Mitchell
Bass: Twm Dylan
Drums: Very Special Guest
Choir: Khoros as conducted by Patrick Allies
From a young age, Billy Harper’s music has been spiritually intertwined with Church, from his Texan childhood, his New York evolution, his many journeys around the world & to his now infamous show at the Metropolitan Cathedral of St. Jacob in Poland in 2007. The hard-as-nails sound of Billy’s horn tells this story, bearing the fruits of countless musical languages, spanning the pathways from jazz to gospel & displaying the nuances of a true veteran of the game.
On the night we will have food served from the moment doors open at 7.30pm. Lexus Blondin will be on the decks while we all have a bite to eat and further into the night.
