Get The Blessing
Bristol Symphony welcomes international jazz four-piece, Get The Blessing, to perform a selection of their most popular tracks, newly arranged for the band and symphony orchestra in collaboration with composer and conductor, William Goodchild. Spanish and Argentinian passions run high in this programme, as music from this ‘seriously creative and wonderfully irreverent quartet’ rubs shoulders with Ravel’s Bolero, Ginastera’s Estanciaand two of Piazzola’s tango masterpieces. Also included is a rare performance of Concierto de Aranjuez (Adagio) from the Miles Davis album Sketches of Spain featuring GTB’s Pete Judge on solo trumpet. This is an evening of red-hot and passionate rhythmic music at the height of summer.
About Get The Blessing
Get the Blessing formed in 2000 to share a fascination with the improvisation and monophonic nature of Ornette Coleman’s early works. Throughout this time, the line-up has remained the same, with Portishead rhythm masters Jim Barr and Clive Deamer (Radiohead) on bass and drums respectively, Pete Judge on trumpet and Jake McMurchie on saxophone. This Bristol-based four-piece can now boast a truly international fan base. Since the release of All is Yes in February 2008, they’ve taken their musical vision round the world with successful tours and festival appearances in the UK, USA, Canada, Ireland, Germany, Austria, France, Spain, Switzerland, Italy, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Dubai, Turkey, Macedonia, Slovakia, Slovenia, and Serbia.
