About The Event

The Nick Costley-White Quartet combine their love and deep understanding for the jazz tradition with a fresh and modern aesthetic. Their repertoire draws on unique interpretations of songs from the jazz cannon as well as their own exciting and harmonically rich compositions. Nick’s debut album, “Detour ahead”, has just been released on Ubuntu Records.
Recorded in April 2017, the album portrays a narrative which explores the group’s musical journey. Beginning with performances which draw from the American Songbook tradition, it travels through to the modern aesthetic inspired by the surroundings of London’s jazz scene. This compelling journey explores sounds from many perspectives simultaneously. Forms, harmonies and rhythms are superimposed and abstracted while retaining their essential function, whilst the improvisations within them express the excitement and beauty of these frameworks.
