EFG London Jazz Festival: John Butcher + Mark Sanders' Tarab Cuts

Acclaimed jazz with an Arabian twist

Tarab Cuts is John Butcher's latest work and it's a majestic one. The 2014 British Composer Awards has shortlisted the work in the Contemporary Jazz Compositions category, and rightly so. Tarab Cuts explores classical Arabic music, with the notion of tarab stemming from pre-1930s music. This culture-spanning, genre-blending piece will be performed by Butcher with drummer Mark Sanders laying down dense rhythms. No under 5s. Latecomers may not be admitted.
