For the last 12 years the quartet have been touring all over the world, stunning audiences with their firebrand performances packed with drama, pathos, luscious harmonies and wit. Atzmon's latest compositions are a sweeping homage to our great cities, from Moscow to Buenos Aires and beyond. Each tune is at once reminiscent and hopeful; in a time of great uncertainty and turbulence Atzmon and the Orient House Ensemble deliver melodies that provide an anchor to wherever it is that we call home. Their performance will include tunes from latest album "Songs Of The Metropolis"

‘A subtle blend of East and West, that’s brutal and beautiful’ BBC.

‘A formidable improvisational array...a jazz giant steadily drawing himself up to his full height...’ The Guardian.
