Jazz composer Andrew McCormack launches his 2018 Graviton tour at Manchester’s Band on the Wall. The hotly tipped British pianist’s 2017 album of the same name has drawn comparisons varying from Chick Corea to Steve Reich and features some of the biggest talents on the contemporary jazz scene, from Mercury nominated vocalist ESKA to saxophonist Shabaka Hutchings, whose other bands include Sons of Kemet and The Comet Is Coming. The result on record is a thrilling cacophony of sounds that it guaranteed to enrapture an audience at the Band on the Wall venue.
