ABOUT THE BAND
The Dissolute Society explores Raph Clarkson’s interests in contemporary improvisation, European jazz, 20th century classical music, poetry, spoken word, song, and soulful grooves. Performed by some of London’s most innovative and in-demand musicians, these varied elements are brought together through a highly personal and expressive narrative, exploring themes of family history, grief, friendship and hope.
Featuring Fini Bearman (vocals), Naomi Burrell (violin), Zosia Jagodzinska (cello), Gustav Clarkson (viola), Laura Jurd (trumpet), Raph Clarkson (trombone, effects, vocals), Phil Merriman (keys) and Simon Roth (drums).
“A triumph…brave, original music”
