Maria Grapsa

Piano song, improvisation & modern jazz writing are the means that Maria portrays her musical journey. As a classically trained, explorative jazz musician, she empowers her sextet to flow free form through original compositions; steam hard in tenor jazz and intricate, emotionally-charged cinematic ballads. Maria’s Greek roots and folk, middle-East, Latin influences, meet jazz in a unique way.

The Beatnik Preachers

Active since:

Musically Exquisite, Lyrically Explicit - Artistically Evocative, Socially Provocative -  the Beatnik Preachers meld a blistering style of jazz with original beat-poetry to form a unique ensemble that provides a palette for both the ears and the mind.

Anthony Norris (trumpet and spoken word) joined by Rob Burke (sax) gather the funky drumming of  Miles Henry and the groove of bassist Nick Haywood to drive a quintet allowing the sublime piano of Joel Louis to evoke and provoke both melody and harmony. Norris and Burke are melodically divine yet technically elaborate, thereby adding a unique interplay of risk and trust within the ensemble that is joyous and raucous. Firmly in the spirit of jazz whilst celebrating the human condition and investigating issues that currently face each and every one of us.

Walter Kemp 3

Born:

Viscount-endorsed artist, Walter Kemp 3 owes much to his father, a classical and gospel composer, who sparked Kemp's early interest in piano. Seeing and hearing his father's compositions performed at Carnegie Hall, opened Kemp's eyes to a world of music. He soon began studying classical piano. After a brief interest in drums, he gravitated toward jazz, continuing to play gospel organ. Kemp, lead composer/pianist for (most recently) the Black Whole, Kemp + the Reyvolation, and the Walter Kemp 3oh! has won widespread critical acclaim for his classic and compelling compositions which experiment with traditional chord progressions with inventive finesse
