Led by singer Emily Wright (“terrifically talented” – The Telegraph), Moonlight Saving Time are a young, dynamic band who interpret the music of the great jazz composers of the 20th century with an original sound featuring bold improvisation alongside atmospheric grooves and world rhythms inspired by Cinematic Orchestra and Massive Attack.
Emily’s rich, clear vocals combine with Nick Malcolm’s warm trumpet tone in an effortless interplay that takes inspiration from Norma Winstone and Kenny Wheeler as much as from Ella and Louis.
The influence of musicians on the contemporary jazz scene such as Ambrose Akinmusire and Gretchen Parlato, is expressed in the band’s unique harmonic voice and sophisticated, risk-taking improvisation.
Sold-out concerts at jazz festivals throughout the UK have led to glowing reviews from Londonjazz and Venue Magazine amongst others, and with a national tour planned for 2013 Moonlight Saving Time are set to make a big impression.
