We're super excited about tonight. Created for Lancaster Jazz Festival 2012 - DEEP CABARET presents 'CHEERIO' - TOP TEN TIPS FOR A GOOD DEATH.The sequel to a fabulous work from Manchester Jazz Festival a few years ago it's got some top musicians, great songs and fantastic sounds.
"Sequeling 2005's near legendary Top Ten Sex Tips, Cheerio will feature players and material drawn from Orchestre DC Dansette, Deep Cabaret 3, DC Vox and Deep Clutter with words taken from sources as varied as Buddhist meditations and BBC sitcoms. Re-mastered for a group of instant improvisers, with live samples fed back into the mix and a parallel film shot by Wired In maestro Richard Davis, it will become a meditation on landscape, death and meaning; a moving but optimistic take on "knowing, not knowing and sort-of-knowing".
Steve Lewis has been blogging throughout the rehearsal process - follow whats happened on the LJF blog (www.lancasterjazz.com/news.html)
And if that wasn't enough we've also managed to tear STEPHEN GREW away from world tours with Evan Parker to do a solo piano set.
