IVO NEAME

 

Introducing music by Ivo Neame to our ConnectsMusic audience. Ivo Neame is an award-winning pianist and composer. In addition to leading his own bands, he has featured in several of European jazz’s most forward-looking groups including Phronesis and the Marius Neset Quintet. He regularly performs at jazz festivals worldwide, collaborating with ensembles as diverse as the Frankfurt Radio Big Band and the London Sinfonietta.

Ivo Neame is one of the very best jazz pianists on the UK scene

BANDCAMP DAILY

 

That Neame is one of the most interesting jazz pianists of his generation may be clear. That he is getting better and better is too. The 10 years of almost constant being on the road with bands has given him a prominent role in the front line of British jazz.

WRITTEN IN JAZZ

VEGETARIANS:

 

Released January 2018 on Edition Records

The track has been played on the J to Z show on BBC Radio 3 and has received airplay around Europe. A live gig from the Bristol Jazz Festival in April 2018 was broadcast on Radio 3 too, featuring both of these pieces.

 

I set a poem of the same name by Roger McGough to music, using the rhythm of the poetry as an inspiration for the melody.

 

Vegetarians are cruel, unthinking people.
Everybody knows that a carrot screams when grated.
That a peach bleeds when torn apart.
Do you believe an orange insensitive
to thumbs gouging out its flesh?
That tomatoes spill their brains painlessly?
Potatoes, skinned alive and boiled,
the soil’s little lobsters.
Don’t tell me it doesn’t hurt
when peas are ripped from the scrotum,
the hide flayed off sprouts,
cabbage shredded, onions beheaded.

 

Throw in the trowel
and lay down the hoe.
Mow no more
Let my people go!
Roger McGough

MOKSHA MUSIC:

 

Released March 2018 on Edition Records

As a band we performed this piece on tours throughout the UK, the Netherlands and Germany, performing in venues such as:

 

King’s Place, London, UK
Paradox, Tilburg, NL
Lutherkirche, Duisburg, DE
A-Trane Jazz Club, Berlin, DE

 

The piece is based on a 7 over 4 structure – it incorporates elements of free improv and I overdubbed different synths and keyboards such as Mellotron, Hammond organ and Nord Lead after we recorded it.

 

The concept of Moksha comes from Indian philosophy and I read about it in a book called Island by Aldous Huxley. It essentially means freedom and self-knowledge although that is a simplification of the term.
