Alina Bzhezhinska Quartet

Dock Arts Centre / 13th Feb 2020

Sligo Jazz Project is very proud to co-promote a concert with the Dock Arts Centre on the 13th Feb 2020, part of a Music Network tour by the extraordinary jazz harpist, Alina Bzhezhinska, with a fabulous Quartet including Toni Kofi on Saxophones. We hope this is the first of many collaborations in bringing great music to Sligo and Leitrim.

Alina Bzhezhinska, harp
Tony Kofi, saxophones
Larry Bartley, double bass
Joel Prime, drums / percussion


If you think the harp is for angels then Alina Bzhezhinska and her quartet will set you right. She brings a new perspective to this supposedly dainty instrument, taking the ground-breaking work of Alice Coltrane in the 1960s as a stepping-off point for her own flighty improvisations and sonic adventures.
Capable of high-octane lapel-grabbing statements, she can also create extraordinary lyricism and soul within her own compositions and this versatility and curiosity has marked her out as a pioneer in the field of Jazz Harp. Now there’s two words you don’t often hear in the same sentence, but let’s get used to them because this musician is here to stay, constantly challenging the notion of boundaries in music, roughing up the harp with tones and textures that would ruffle many an angel wing.
Presented by Music Network.
