Latest Gigs

July 2018

18th @ Bull’s Head. Tom Millar Quartet

Tom Millar quartet will be playing compositions from last year’s debut album ‘Unnatural Events’ and new material.

Tom Millar’s band features Misha Mullov-Abbado (Zirobop, Radio 3 New Generation Artist), Alex Munk (Flying Machines, Fabled) and Dave Storey (Asterope, Tom Smith Septet).

Unnatural Events’ was played on BBC Radio 3, BBC Radio Scotland, Jazz FM and London Jazz. Last year they completed a 20-date tour of the UK, funded by Arts Council England.

“Millar’s writing is part of a lineage of polished modernism whose building blocks are to be found in the holy trinity of Herbie, Chick and Bill Evans, but whose additional masonry has pleasing echoes of their scions, namely Pat Metheny and Brian Blade. At its highpoint the performance reaches a poetic, pastoral grace.” Kevin Le Gendre, Jazzwise
