Onyx to give streamed concert for JAM on the Marsh Festival

We are so please to announce that on August 8th at 730pm, JAM on the Marsh Festival will be live streaming a concert we recorded for them in Hythe. Due to the ongoing Covid 19 situation, the festival as planned sadly was shelved. However Ed Armitage and Festival Director Michael Bawtree have curated JAM on the Marsh: Virtual with nine concerts and three exhibitions online from 6th – 15th August.

The concert, recorded as live in one take with no breaks or edits, is based around our recent NMC Recordings jazz inspired disc, Onyx Noir. It features works by Kenny Wheeler, Trish Clowes, Jason Rebello, Laurence Cottle, Colin Skinner and Mark Nightingale but also a new arrangement by Gershwin and one of Herbert Chappell’s Hollywood Portraits to round off the evening.
