Charlie Pyne Quartet’s sound is one of effervescent optimism. They combine elusive riffs, kaleidoscopic harmony and inevitable-sounding melodies which remain in the ear long after the music ends. The debut album, ‘Dancing Shadows’, is a joyful and thoughtful exploration of Charlie’s personal and musical influences. The songs range from a tango-inspired love song to a rocky ghost story about trains, and the title track ‘Dancing Shadows’ is a bass and sax duet which builds into a raucous celebration. This is Charlie’s first project playing her original compositions, having spent the last 10 years playing double bass with great musicians such as Yazz Ahmed, Noel Langley, Martin France, Brigitte Beraha and Nikki Isles.
VORTEX FUNDRAISING T-SHIRTS:
March 2 2018 two iconic musicians and old friends Dave Holland and Evan Parker joined forces in a fundraiser to show, as well as give their support to the Vortex Jazz Club – a fine institution that has help many a musician at the start of their career. The club has existed without any core funding after its establishment by founder David Mossman over twenty-five years ago. The club needs financial help to keep its operations going. We hope you will show your support by taking out a membership, coming to gigs or donating. You can make a donation by clicking the “donate” tab. We also have some new fundraising T-shirts with a fab design that was commissioned by Tim Berne (Snake Oil) with graphics by Steve Byram.
