Stuart McCallum Residency
Performing as part of his 'Projects' residency at the club, you can catch Stuart performing tonight alongside Dave Walsh (drums), Pete Turner (bass)
Chris Manis (percussion) and Stuart (guitar/laptop).
Stuart McCallum's music is 'alternative jazz', a distillation of influences, a sound that is concentrated and distinctive. Not wanting to hide behind over complicated harmonic and rhythmical structures, angular and forgettable melodies, Stuart's music is a new hybrid of composition, production and performance. It embraces simple, memorable melodies, bass lines and drum beats, with electronica and improvisation enriched by elegant orchestral writing.
Stuart has a wealth of experience in many different musical environments and genres. After being invited to join the Cinematic Orchestra in 2004, Stuart has performed on and contributed to the writing of the band's critically acclaimed albums, 'Ma Fleur' and 'Live At The Royal Albert Hall'. In addition he has contributed to the award winning Disney nature documentary soundtrack 'The Crimson Wing', and the remix of Radiohead's 'Exit Music For A Film' for Radiohead’s remix compilation album, 'Exit Music: Songs For Radio Heads'. Performances with the band include The Royal Albert Hall with the Heritage Orchestra and The London Metropolitan Orchestra, headlining The Big Chill in the UK, and playing at Montreal Jazz Festival and Coachella festival in Palm Springs.
