TD Vancouver International Jazz Festival presents GoGo Penguin
“Jazz, techno, hip-hop and dubstep are glimpsed here, but for all the looping motifs and dance floor vibes, this is the work of three sure-footed improvisers with deep jazz roots”—The Guardian
Manchester-based Blue Note recording artists GoGo Penguin’s skittering break-beats, powerful sub-bass, telepathic interplay, and penchant for anthemic melody “recall the intricacy of Aphex Twin or Four Tet” (The 4O5). Electrifying live performers, pianist Chris Illingworth, bassist Nick Blacka, and drummer Jon Scott channel electronic and club culture atmospheres alongside influences from jazz, rock and 20th century minimalism to create music that flows from the dancefloor to meditative inner-worlds.
