The London Latin Jazz Fest comes to a barn-storming grand final with the most the most ambitious and wild fusion yet. Over two shows, the Alex Wilson Quartet turns up the heat remorselessly with Afro-Cuban pianistic fire from Wilson, exhibitionist displays of impossible prowess by Venezuelan percussion maestro Edwin Sanz and demon Celtic-fusion violinist, Peter Tickell.
Tickell is an exciting new discovery, whose frenzied passion for genre-bending matches Wilson's own insatiable creative drive. Passionate about the folk music of his native Northumbria, Celtic rhythms as well as his strong classical foundations, Tickell is as mad about jazz, pop, world and more. Over the past two years, Tickell has toured with Sting's band.
