Play Out


Highly acclaimed saxophonist Jesse Bannister brings together MOBO award winning pianist Zoe Rahman, double Mercury Prize nominated percussionist Seb Rochford and Corrine Bailey Rae bassist Kenny Higgins for an exciting and innovative exploration of jazz and Indian music.

Embroidered with elements of jazz, and imprinted with a distinctive new take on the Asian fusion of the 1980s and '90s, 'Play Out' is a landmark collection of highly inventive and truly collaborative pieces. Followers of Jesse will recognise his trademark style as he effortlessly weaves a tapestry of Raag and Taal. The result is an album of immense quality, warmth and integrity.

Jesse Bannister has toured both nationally and internationally and has performed alongside many highly acclaimed artists including Grammy winner Bikram Ghosh, Mercury Prize winner Talvin Singh, the Halle Orchestra and Andy Shepherd.

Jesse's strengths as a composer and performer mark him out as one of the country's leading innovative musicians and this impressive quartet is a powerful vehicle to express Jesse's compositions and interpret his music with outstanding ability. Rahman's unique and intricate style coupled with Bannister's impressive technical and creative ability and the solid, intricate rhythms of Rochford and Higgins come together to form a formidable sound.
