Yeti @ Black Mountain Jazz Club
Yetii’ is a Bristol based acoustic jazz trio. The group creates a sound world of complex yet consonant harmony supporting simple, singable melodies. Solos morph into intense group improvisations that focus on interlocking, minimalist fragments: a shared single voice that ebbs and flows between and within the band’s original compositions.
Whilst most of the audience wouldn’t have previously identified as jazz fans what they do pick up on is the spirit of interplay at work between the musicians in front of them. Throwaway washy quintuplet outros, B sections like a Disney movie chorus: this is serious jazz craft in an accessible guise facilitated by detailed compositions that give space for the musicians to be spontaneous and change direction.
