Hidden Rooms

An exciting new sextet comprising six of the UK's most sought-after musicians, collectively celebrating the music of major jazz composers such as Gil Evans, Michael Gibbs, George Gershwin, John Lewis and Jaco Pastorius, in a programme of personal favourites.

A fan of Gil Evan's music since the mid 60s, both Mo and Ray Russell were members of the Gil Evans British Orchestra in the 1980s with such luminaries as John Surman, Henry Lowther, Stan Sulzman, John Taylor, and John Marshall. As Mo says 'His sound world left such a lasting impression that when I put together this new band the sound I was aiming for was Gil Evans in Miniature: structured, with beautiful harmonies and melodies, and with room for great solos. I chose my dream simply because they are the best, and are amongst the finest jazz soloists in the country'
