SOK Basement - Akimbo & Rachael Cohen Trio

Next gig in the The Star of Kings basement is coming your way, don't miss it!

AKIMBO
Akimbo is all askew. It's messing with pop, playing with jazz, and finding space in time. Created from a love of complex simplicity, angular harmony and serious fun, Pedro Velasco and Nell Greco lead this pedal-tastic

project, seeking out the sweetest musical spots that often hide in plain sight. Inspired by the likes of Tom Waits, The Dirty Three, Eva Cassidy and Bill Frisell, Akimbo play the music they love, whether original or covered, and are ever in flux.

Nell Greco - Vocals
Pedro Velasco - Guitar

RACHAEL COHEN TRIO
Rachael Cohen, a London-based alto saxophonist and composer, is one of the brightest emerging stars of her generation. Her skills as a composer and improviser have gained her a great deal of attention in the UK and beyond.
The Guardian notes:
“Cohen takes a softly devious approach reminiscent of Lee Konitz – but, as with the canny Cool School veteran, the quietness is deceptive and the subtlety is in the weighting of phrases and the hipness with which she plays off the rhythm section.”

Rachael Cohen - Sax
Tom Farmer - Double Bass
Shane Forbes - Drums
