Featuring full band and string quartet, this very special concert sees The Cinematic Orchestra's guitarist Stuart McCallum bring his refreshingly original alt-jazz sound to Band on the Wall.
From jazz beginnings to DJ culture, Stuart McCallum’s music is ‘alternative jazz’ – a distillation of influences, creating 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 McCallum joined the Cinematic Orchestra in 2004 and has performed 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, the remix of Radiohead’s Exit Music For A Film and many other projects.
