The Coronet Theatre Jazz Festival 2023: Josephine Davies Trio
Winner of the 2019 Parliamentary Award ‘Jazz Instrumentalist of the year’, Josephine Davies will play tracks from How Can We Wake? the latest release from her acclaimed trio project Satori.
HOW CAN WE WAKE?
Josephine Davies continues to assert her unique presence across the crowded landscape of international jazz with the latest release from the acclaimed trio project that she has been developing since 2016 under the name of Satori. This latest iteration reunites her with two of the UK’s most uncategorisable talents: both Dave Whitford on bass and James Maddren on drums combine a fearsome level of accomplishment with a fearless appetite for improvisation that makes them the perfect partners in this venture.
This album captures a particular moment of presence as the band perform a suite of pieces, poised in the space between composition and the mindful spontaneity of collective improvisation. Taking the writings of the Indian sage Patanjali as an inspiration, Davies created the pieces for How Can We Wake? as sets of melodic and rhythmic parameters for the trio to explore in the heat of the present moment. The powerful combination of fearless free improvisation and melodic empathy from these gifted players creates a powerful and timely statement.
