Description

'Flea Circus' is trumpeter Jack Davies' latest small group project. It blends trumpet, bass clarinet, accordion and double bass, evoking European influences - both classical and jazz.

Inspired by Dave Douglas' Charms of the Night Sky group, the French Bal-Musette, and Ivo Papasov's incredible Bulgarian band, Flea Circus has a distinctive, nocturnal sound. It has a great diversity of mood and strong narrative thread, taking the listener on a journey through darker sound worlds and lighter more joyful melodies. In stark contrast to much of the electrified music being made today, Flea Circus is an entirely acoustic chamber group. Drawing on the canon of European jazz and contemporary music and fusing composition and improvisation this recording follows concerts at LSO St Luke's and a broadcast from The BBC Proms for BBC Radio 3.

Personnel: Jack Davies (trumpet), Rob Cope (clarinets), Aidan Shepherd (accordion), James Opstad (double bass)
