Jaga Jazzist

Roundhouse presents In the Round

Friday 27 January

Jaga Jazzist + support

Tickets £15 – £20 / Doors 7pm – part of In The Round

Jaga Jazzist are one of the most celebrated and influential of the Norwegian post-jazz bands. Part jazz ensemble, part post-rock outfit and part electronica pioneers, they have always been an absurdly difficult band to pigeonhole. Their constant re-invention and restless energy has marked them out as standard-bearers for a new musical sound and one whose music has been a profound influence on both the contemporary jazz and electronica scenes, as well as helping to define a new musical space between the genres. Influenced by artists from Gil Evans to Radiohead, My Bloody Valentine to Tortoise, Oslo 13 to Motorpsycho and Fela Kuti to Steve Reich, Jaga Jazzist have created a sound unlike anyone else. Their live shows, driven by an arsenal of multi-instrumentalists – all leaders and producers in their own right – are marked by a hypnotic intensity that brings their already thrilling music to powerful life. For tonight’s very special performance and Roundhouse debut, expect to hear music from their recent electronica-heavy, Ninja Tune Records release, Starfire, alongside hits from their illustrious back catalogue.

 

“sounds that recall everything from Weather Report to big-band jazz, krautrock, Radiohead or even the Pat Metheny Group” The Guardian
