Shapeshifters

Matt & Phreds

Shapeshifters is a new-found contemporary jazz trio made up of three friends whose musical roots are grounded in the rich tradition of the genre. The trio combines their musical backgrounds with influences from the likes of Charles Mingus, Fly Trio and the Tristano School.  

When playing together they embrace spontaneity, able to morph the direction of a piece at the flick of a switch and constantly challenging themselves to improvise fearlessly and unapologetically.  

Performing a mix of original material and unique takes on standard repertoire, the group produces a coherent narrative whilst keeping you on your toes as to what might happen next. Their debut album was released earlier this year on Leeds based label New Jazz Records 

A fluent debut album of expert solos and togetherness in each pattern and phrase,” Ben Lee, Jazz Revelations.  

Doors 18:00
