Jazz Leeds/Madame Jazz present: Emma Johnson’s “Gravy Boat” with Nishla Smith
Emma Johnson sax, Calvin Travers guitar, Sam Quintana double bass, Ali Wells drums, Nishla Smith vocals.
Emma’s first project for small ensemble aims to explore the different textures and possibilities that emerge from a small band of close knit musicians performing together. Emma’s writing for the quartet displays an accessible, contemporary sound rooted by strong melodies.
Nishla Smith moved to the UK from Berlin in 2017, for a collaborative project and tour with string quartet Manchester Collective. This year she has been one of Manchester Jazz Festival’s talent development artists. Watch a live recording at Sage Gateshead here:
