Music event

RVJB Festival Present Ancient Infinity Orchestra

Sunday 5 May 2024

Ribble Valley Jazz and Blues are delighted to welcome Ancient Infinity Orchestra to the Grand for Sunday’s headline performance

Melodic, warm and honest this is music that is happy to wear its heart on its sleeve.

A  huge helping of peaceful beauty

Jamie Cullum

Ancient Infinity orchestra is a jazz ensemble led by double-bassist and composer Ozzy Moysey, based in the bustling creative city of Leeds – home to one of the most innovative and community-based jazz scenes in the UK.

Their Gondwana Records debut ‘River of Light’ drinks deep from the well of spiritual jazz and is especially inspired by the soulful sounds of Pharoah Sanders, Alice and John Coltrane – all of whom are mentioned in the brilliant track ‘Pharoah Sings’ – but also channels a certain Northern sensibility.

This is communal music made by friends, which offers a deep celebration of togetherness and of music-making. It’s confidently deep music, moving and meditative.

Supported using public funding by Arts Council England.
