Just East is a unique band with an extraordinary synthesis of sound, colour, light and imagery – whose roots go back to 1993. It will be 20 years since the band last appeared at the Jazz Club and we are eagerly awaiting their return. Back then Just East gained a reputation as one of the first and best groups to explore the connections between jazz and klezmer, but quickly developed a sound and approach all their own, and over time took in a much wider range of influences. Their writing embodies their personal and idiosyncratic concept and compositional style, a collective voice which fans recognise and love. The band has a uniquely off-beam take on contemporary jazz, incorporating world, folk, prog and classical influences.
“A wonderful amalgamation of inspired writing and stunning playing” – The Musician
