J Frisco are an award-winning avant-garde jazz trio (Jazz North Introduces 2017) featuring soprano saxophone, electric guitar, keyboards and vocals; they create improvised genre-fluid soundscapes and noise drawn from emotion, political, and gender issues. They thrive on challenging both their own and their audiences perceptions of time, space and sound.
Performance highlights include a headline show at Vortex Jazz Club, Sofar Sounds, The Cockpit: Jazz in the Round and many UK jazz festivals including Gateshead International Jazz Festival, Lancaster Jazz Festival, Manchester Jazz Festival and have supported acts including Courtney Pine, Portico Quartet, Laura Jurd, Roller Trio, Matthew Bourne, and Elliott Galvin.
They have recently released their debut album ‘naked’ available on all streaming platforms and are set to play London Jazz Festival on November 15th at Kings Place. Their second album will be released as a series of singles through 2020.
