Idle Moments Presents An Evening With Ben Lamar Gay on Sunday 11th November 2018

An Evening of Avant Garde and beautiful words, visuals and music with one of the most stimulating and unique recording artists in Jazz or any other genre. Supported by the cream of young Mancunian Jazz Musicians and beginning with an early evening communal meal*.


BEN LAMAR GAY is a composer, cornetist, vocalist, and producer who moves components of sound, color, and space through folkloric filters to produce brilliant electro-acoustic collages. In Gay’s work, the unification of these various styles is always in service of the narrative, and never a pretentious display of technique. Gay's true technique is in giving life to an idea while transforming the thought and theory of the term “Americana.'

His musical influences derive from his collection of experiences in all of the Americas, and the gathered data channeled by technology and its amplifying accessibility. The fact that the world is closer via technology, and that everyone has access to the possibility of exploring different ideas, makes his avant-garde version of “Americana” very global. Embracing international vision while remaining true to his roots, Gay's creative output aligns with the honest notion that he only knows how to be a man from the South Side of Chicago.
