From 20:30pm to 22:30pm
Deeply relaxing music as Johnty takes you through his own compositions with melodic soft saxophone, Rhodes piano, sound healing, jazz noir, meditative improvisations and stunning visual projections.
Johnty Wilks takes you on a journey of ambient, improvised melodic jazz to beautiful backdrop projections. Johnty's soft mellow sax tone, combined with electronics and K Darling on U-bass/programming, bring influences of relaxing nordic jazz, the warmth of Brazil, jazz noir soundscapes and Ibiza chillout to their concerts.
Line-up: Johnty Wilks on Alto and Soprano saxes, Synths/Piano/Electronics with K Darling on fretless and U-bass, electronics, plus special guest.
Johnty Wilks is a saxophonist, composer and producer of his special brand of relaxing music and spiritual jazz. Influenced by ECM artists, the modal jazz of Miles Davis, the hypnotic chants of Don Cherry's trumpet, he brings a refreshing approach to the newer boundaries of jazz.
"His sound is cool, instantly captivating and reminiscent of Jan Garbarek and the late Paul Desmond. Eyes tightly closed, he improvises freely; richly melodic phrases flow endlessly from his imagination." The Jazzman Blog
"Johnty holds his audience spellbound, a tour-de-force performance of free flowing improvisation." Alternative Reading
"His music is beautiful" - Lucinda Drayton from Bliss
