York, NCEM, Walmgate, Saturday 16 March, 8pm
The Ryedale Festival’s Spring Weekend (set to launch the summer programme this Friday) continues on Saturday at the National Centre for Early Music with some modern, upbeat, melodious jazz.
The double-bassist and composer Misha Mullov-Abbado burst onto the scene in 2015 with a sensational debut album that prompted a stream of plaudits from international press and fans alike. As the son of the conductor Claudio Abbado and Russian violinist Viktoria Mullova, Misha has not only exceeded high expectations but established himself as a highly individual talent in his own right. Now a BBC New Generation Artist, he brings his unique sound and style to York, along with some of the top names in British jazz.
“unfailing inventive, artfully produced, and delightfully sunny” – The Daily Telegraph
“luxurious ballads…folk-melodic grace…broad-grin swing…hot jazz news” – The Guardian
