Concert Details

Bassist Brodie Jarvie, presents a new project, CARNIVAL with long standing collaborators and staples of the Glasgow Jazz scene, Adam Jackson (Alto Saxophone), Stuart Brown (Drums), and joined here by Michael Butcher (Tenor Saxophone). Playing all original music that strikes the balance between improvisation and melodic and rhythmic interplay. Powerful lyrical music, masterful arranging and a clear and honest attitude towards music, CARNIVAL promise an exciting evening filled with soaring melodies and recognisable grooves.
Right now, Brodie lives in Glasgow after completing a Masters in Music from the Conservatorium van Amsterdam where he was featured on many recordings and was able to tour extensively around central Europe with his own and other projects, he was also played with two of finalist bands in the prestigious ‘Keep an Eye Jazz Award’ two years running, held in the Bimhuis, Amsterdam every year. He leads his own Quintet playing original compositions and co-leads a quartet with fellow peers called ‘PULL’ who recorded their debut album ‘Pull a String, A Puppet Moves’ on Loumi Records, in 2015. He is also an in demand sideman in the UK and beyond, in summer 2015 he performed at Rochester Jazz Festival as part of a US tour around the United States with ‘Trio Red’. 
“Brodie Jarvie is an imaginative musician who showcases equal strengths as a bass player and composer. His music conjures up an image of concentric circles; taking the listener through an uncommon but always captivating melodic and harmonic landscape where tension and release abound.” 
– Ben Van Gelder (Alto Saxophone)
