Mangorata + Support

3 February at 7:30 pm

Mangorata are one of the best of Leeds’ next generation rising jazz stars. A 6-piece jazz fusion collective, they combine original tunes and improvisation, creating high energy with lively rhythms inspired by legends like Herbie Hancock, Chick Corea, Wayne Shorter, and more recent artists such as Nubiyan Twist and Nubya Garcia. The band met at Leeds Conservatoire where they are students and have combined their love for jazz, funk and Latin music to create a vibrant dancefloor friendly sound that can rock clubs and festivals and not just the standard jazz club seated style venues.  Driven from the back by fiery drummer Miles Pillinger, they also feature another young virtuoso in trumpeter Olivia Cuttill, just 20 years old and already blowing people away with her incredibly mature soloing/playing. She released her own debut solo album ‘Three’s A Crowd’ in 2022. With fellow boss horn player James Absalom by her side on tenor sax, they make a formidable brass section. Miles also has heavy company in the rhythm section from pianist Liam Mason, percussionist JJ Petrie (Plantfood) and double bass player Chris Williams.
