Jordan Hart X AKKU String Quaintet

Prepare for an evening of mellow, moving sounds that soothe soul in troubled times, calming our wild Autumnal spirits as the Harvest Equinox settles in.

AKKU Quintet are a Swiss band based in Berne, from where they dispense a minimalistic jazz groove to great effect. Between the mesmeric ostinato, subtly shifting grooves, resonant overtones, tingling harmonics and languorous, yearning melodies, AKKU Quintet hover somewhere between smouldering, jazz-infused intimacy, expansive post-rock vistas and an insistent minimalist intensity. 

Following their acclaimed 2015 album, Molecules, AKKU Quintet have released their third record, Aeon. Intense, brooding and powerful, it contains a sequence of darkly beautiful compositions. The band avoids any obvious soloing. Instead they move through their tunes in a highly disciplined, tight formation which fans of "Sonar" and the work of zen-funk pioneer, Zurich-based pianist, Nik Bärtsch, will recongise and respect.
