Seven Jazz Leeds – Alex Munk ‘Flying Machines

19th February 2017 - 1:30 pm - 4:00 pm

Flying Machines play emotive and dramatic music, drawing upon influences as diverse as jazz, pop, progressive rock and metal to create an utterly unique and modern sound.

Formed by guitarist Alex Munk in 2014, the band features some of the most innovative young musicians to emerge in recent years from the UK jazz scene. Centred on Alex Monk’s unique compositional approach, the band fuse visceral, rock-out guitar improv with anthemic melodies and lusciously textured soundscapes.

It’s a sound shot through with the here and now, a decadent mash up of free-wheeling improvisations, prog rock energy and ambient meditations that never detracts from the emotive lyricism at the music’s core.

Sweet, lyrical passages blend with impossible prog-like time signatures to create a fresh, modern sound with its own distinctive character”
Peter Jones, LondonJazzNews

“Incredible musicianship, tight and crisp” Jez Nelson, Jazz FM

“…alchemical infusions of jazz, prog, metal and pop make for a vibrant mix of the visceral and vertiginous, combining melody and soundscape to startling effect” Spencer Grady, Jazzwise
