Contemporary jazz string trio, J.A.M. String Collective, brings improvising strings to the fore. The trio weaves songlike melodies into open group improvisations, creating spontaneous filmic textures, injected with a solid dose of groove and the Blues. Occupying a fluid space between jazz and contemporary sound worlds,J.A.M.takes influence from the likes of Caroline Shaw, Charles Mingus, and Kronos Quartet.
“pushing at the boundaries of jazz... delivering walking lines, heavy riffs and rattles and taps, are thoroughly contemporary.... much more than a warm up act” Financial Times ★★★★
