Takes place during Jazz Goes to Town 2019

Bigband Large Unit will perform at Jazz Goes to Town festival on 12 October.

This Scandinavian avantgarde big band of fifteen members consists of Scandinavian musicians across jazz, experimental, rock and classical music scenes. A powerful, explosive ending to this year’s Jazz Goes to Town. The band’s leader and rhythmical heart is a Norweigan drummer Paal Nilssen-Love, famous for his work with Mats Gustafsson, Peter Brötzmann, Arto Lindsay, Joe McPhee, Ken Vandermark, and many other personalities of the world’s non-conforming music scene. Large Unit creates incredibly powerful, unusual, multi-layered, emotional music including next to composed parts also composed and free improvisation. Their music is influenced by modern jazz and rock and jazz avantgarde, but also by Ethiopian and Brazilian music. This is their first performance in the Czech Republic.
