Huw Warren - This is Now!

The 2005 winner of the BBC Jazz Award for Innovation proves he's worthy of the accolade with an Arts Council of Wales commissioned project fusing jazz and new music in what's billed as a "unique, eclectic and compelling exploration of modern Wales".

This is Now! (Nawr!) is performed by an all Welsh ensemble with new text in Welsh by Aled Jones Williams, freestyle rap from Nobsta Nuts, and the virtuoso improvising of guitarist John Parricelli.

Forthcoming performances:

  • Weds 5 April - Tabernacl, Machynlleth
  • Thurs 6 April - Wales Millennium Centre, Cardiff
  • Friday 7 April - Vortex Jazz Club, London

    Look out too for Gower Boy, another new project in which Huw explores his Welsh roots.
