Elftet Johnny Mansfield2

Jonny Mansfield’s “Elftet” @Seven Arts – 16 Sept 1.30pm

Jonny Mansfield is a 21 year old vibraphone/drummer/percussionist and composer from Shepley just south of Huddersfield. He is now based in London where he studied at the Royal Academy of Music after  being awarded the Colin Murray Scholarship. “Elftet”  is his eleven piece band – they recently performed their debut gig at the 606 Club, played in a masterclass with Dave Holland and received the Tebbutt Exhibition Award.

“Elftet” play Johnny Mansfield’s original compositions – influenced by those of Vince Mendoza, Marius Neset and Ravel, as well as songwriters such as Norah Jones and James Taylor. This large ensemble offers a wide palette of textures and colours, from traditional four horn writing to more contemporary classical music with the use of strings and vibraphone. Elftet has gigged already around the UK and has been played on BBC radio 3 and WBGO (New York jazz station).

In September 2017, “Elftet” recorded with vibraphone virtuoso Jim Hart producing, Alex Bonney engineering and mixing as well as flute wizard Gareth Lockrane, Kit Downes on organ and tenor legend Chris Potter featuring on tracks.

“As a professional musician, I appreciate the high level of craft exhibited by Jonny Mansfield’s Elftet. But more importantly, as a human being I bask in the beautiful feeling this music gives me. I will return to it again and again. Thank you, Jonny & Co.!” -Joe Locke
