Andrew McCormack - Graviton (2017)

Internationally acclaimed pianist and composer Andrew McCormack consistently challenges himself to explore new and very different musical styles as an artist. Whether appearing with Kyle Eastwood or Jamie Cullum, with a symphony orchestra or as a solo pianist, at outdoor festivals or an intimate club, you can always expect the highest level of performance. 

With Andrew’s latest project, Graviton, he has assembled an A-List of the most sought-after musicians in the modern jazz world, all of whom bring something special to the mix. ESKA, Mercury prize nominee, joins the band on vocals. Sons of Kemet’s sax sensation Shabaka Hutchings and Jacob Collier’s electric bass supremo Robin Mullarkey are a stellar addition. In keeping with this extraordinary line-up, Scandinavia’s Anton Eger, of Phronesis fame, is the driving force on drums.

Their music may be best described as a mix of Steve Reich and Tigran Hamasyan, without boundaries.

Graviton--the upcoming album on JazzVillage--and the 2017 tour, will take Andrew’s career to a newly defined musical space...and one that audiences will remember.
