Eddie Parker's Debussy Mirrored Ensemble is a unique and exciting collaboration of jazz, classical and world music performers.
Taking Debussy's music as a starting point, it takes us on a fascinating journey. There are moments of exquisite beauty, unbelievable virtuosity and surprising invention.
With vocalists James Gilchrist and Brigitte Beraha taking centre stage, this concert at Watermill Jazz launches the band’s first album.
"The stage in the Southbank Centre’s Purcell Room was a wonderful sight to behold even before the musicians had taken their places. A grand piano in one corner, a harp in the other, a synth on a stand at the front, a gong and a vibraphone at the back. What promised to be a unique and memorable gig turned out to be just that."
