Poetry and Jazz Layer Cake

Poetry and Jazz Layer Cake


Featuring the writer John Harvey and the John Lake Band

• Award winning crime novelist and poet John Harvey in a poetry and jazz performance
• Brighton based band led by John Lake playing his original modern and melodic jazz-groove compositions
• Latest CD Wave of Translation launched to a capacity audience at the Verdict Jazz Cafe Brighton in March 2016


John Lake’s compositions often draw on observations and experiences during his life including his passion for the South Downs (Up on the Downs); the team GB’s first gold win in the 2012 Olympics (Clear Water); a visit to Cuba (Cubanicity); and homages to jazz heroes such as Dave Brubeck, Thelonius Monk and Abdullah Ibrahim. He also re-invents pieces of classical music into a jazz setting including music by Frederic Chopin, J.S. Bach and Isaac Albeniz.
