PORTICO QUARTET

JAZZ

SUITABILITY: Year 5–12 Music
THEMES: Jazz, world music (Gamelan, West Indian), minimalism, pop

Having spent years honing their sound by busking throughout Europe, Portico Quartet's fluid playing has led to celebrated appearances at Big Chill, Glastonbury and the London Jazz Festival. Their debut Knee-deep in the North Sea was nominated for the prestigious Mercury Prize and was named Jazz, Folk and World Music album of the year by Time Out.

Ethereal sax, double bass and drums combine with the Hang, an 'otherworldly steel drum', to produce truly distinctive, hook-heavy instrumental music that moves from mellow and soothing to exuberant and adventurous, drawing on everything from jazz and classical to African.
