The EFG London Jazz Festival returns to Kings Place with a host of illustrious international names and a residency from America’s First Lady of drums, Terri Lyne Carrington. The Grammy-winning artist and producer, long-term collaborator with Herbie Hancock, brings her new band Social Science Community, as well as a late-night line-up with exciting British talent, Emma Jean Thackray, Soweto Kinch, TrueMendous and Ayanna Witter-Johnson.
Kings Place is an open, multi-arts venue, presenting an adventurous and critically-acclaimed programme, with words and music at its heart.
Every year they curate a series of festivals to engage a breadth of different communities. Kings Place is the place where many audiences belong, a place where people connect with their passion and no-one is lost in the crowd.
Kings Place was developed from a generous act of philanthropy. Driven by a belief that arts and culture are a fundamental part of a thriving city – our work is as vibrant as our location in King’s Cross.
Other names include radical Chicago artist Angel Bat Dawid, Omar Puente and Courtney Pine, Jan Bang and Matt Calvert (Three Trapped Tigers) with Eisenstein’s Battleship Potemkin, Palestinian pianist Faraj Suleimann, Maurice Louca’s Elephantine Band, Polish duo Zimpel/Ziolek, Alice Zawadzki, Abel Selaocoe, Roller Trio and Dan Tepfer.
