PHoenician Blinds

 

We are PHoenician blinds

 

Based out of London, Phoenician Blinds are a jazz-leaning instrumental quartet with blends of straight-ahead jazz, hip-hop and cinematic soundscapes. 'It's the classic jazz quartet in a slightly different light. We work in an unusually organic way both live and in the studio, even in jazz terms. The tunes are mostly written at the piano and then brought to the studio where no one is given any musical guidelines, let alone any written music. We just roll and see what happens which gives the tunes a fresh feel and a sense that everyone really is meeting at the centre.'  Influenced by the likes of Esbjörn Svensson Trio, Robert Glasper and Avishai Cohen, this is music sure to make you groove and contemplate the essence of soulful music.

 

Piano, Fender Rhodes / Tom Sochas
Tenor Saxophone / Julian Knapp
Bass / Oli Cross
Drums, Percussion / Matt Parkinson

This time last year we successfully launched our very first album 'Elephantine'. With your help we managed to head to the studio, mix, master and release 8 little gems, most of them shorter glimpses of our musical world. Well folks that time has come again and we've already recorded half of the material , which this time is taking the form of fuller/longer compositions (you can find one of the tracks in the form of a live video in the media section). Feel free to lend us a helping hand to make our second record come to life! You can donate here : https://www.gofundme.com/helpphoenicianblinds

Also we're very excited to be heading out on tour in October / November so do come out if you're in the area and come hang!

On the the 5th and 6th of November 2016 we launched our debut album 'Elephantine' at Echoes in Dalston and Spiritual Caipirinha Bar in Camden. These ore a few pictures from the first night taken by our favorite photographer (and dear friend) Noela Roibas. We had a great time playing that show and we seemed to get a good reaction from the crowd. One member, and poet, Georgina Norie kindly wrote : 'This is the kind of jazz that undresses your soul, makes you forget the world and remember who you are.'
