New Movement Ensemble at St James
"New Movement Ensemble is a collective of musicians and friends who have spent the last decade creating music and challenging each other to express themselves honestly.
Having met in London in the early 2010s, the group draw their inspirations from the wide breadth of artistic and cultural wealth the city has to offer, as well as carrying on the traditions taught to them by the British Jazz greats.
New Movement Ensemble released their debut album entitled “Never Far From Home” in November 2021, recorded at the legendary Total Refreshment Centre where the band played their debut gig in 2017. Since then the band has gone on to perform at venues and festivals around the UK and have features on national radio including Gilles Peterson’s WWFM. The music that New Movement Ensemble makes has a focus on story-telling, with Melodicism, Improvisation and Groove as its core tenants.
Drawing sonic influences from Herbie Hancock to King Crimson to Weather Report to Pharaoh Saunders, New Movement Ensemble endeavour to take the audience on a musical journey and explore the vast possibilities of an ensemble that knows no limits."
