Jazz for the Playing Card Factory

Kings Place - 90 York Way, London N1 9AG

The show will feature original jazz compositions inspired by the French poets Arthur Rimbaud and Paul Verlaine, and by the Chas & Goodall Playing Card Factory, a centre for technical innovation and artistic creativity, which in 1873 was situated right next door to the house where the poets lived in Royal College Street in Camden.

Distinguished by a strong urban vibe, this outstanding jazz show will use mainstream modern jazz to tell a story of creativity, and the immigrant experience of coming to London – both for the French poets in the 1870s and for those arriving now – to escape oppression or to make a new life for themselves.

With musical influences including Dizzy Gillespie, Miles Davis, Thelonious Monk, and John Coltrane, Sorin Zlat is one of Europe’s most outstanding Jazz artists, guaranteed to delight. Immerse yourself in the cool urban grooves of amazing mainstream jazz, and celebrate the life and the creativity of the city, then and now, symbolised by luck and the hands we are dealt at cards.
