Jonny Phillips' Oriole + Basquiat Strings
In May 2013 Oriole and Basquiat Strings, two of Britain's most critically acclaimed and popular instrumental groups will tour together for the first time.
Their leaders Jonny Phillips (Oriole) and Ben Davis (Basquiat Strings), great friends for many years, have much in common from classical, Brazilian, and jazz music to travel and humour. They also share the same drummer, Seb Rochford (Polar Bear). This being said the sound of their two groups, although both utilizing the earthy raw sounds of folk/jazz/classical music informed by tradition, vary greatly.
Both groups have new albums. Oriole's first album since Jonny's return from Spain - Every New Day was released in may 2012 to the usual critical success, where as Basquiat Strings, whose first album was nominated for the Mercury award, will be releasing their exceptional second album - Basquiat Strings - part II – as part of the May 2013 tour.

Led by guitarist Jonny Phillips this unique fusion outfit plays modern original compositions. Expect superb live jazz from this not-to-be-missed South London-based ensemble. The Oriole line-up includes two Mercury Award nominated artists, Ben Davis and Seb Rochford.
'Expect waltzes, gentle samba, persuasive grooves, poignant themes and uplifting melodies that'll make you smile, think and want to dance' (TimeOut, London).
'Utterly persuasive and charming' (Mojo).
Jonny Phillips' Oriole tour dates
The Mercury Prize nominated Basquiat Strings, who blend Hungarian and jazz influences in their richly textured take on classical string groupings.
Fronted by cellist Ben Davis, The Basquiat Strings have added Richard Pryce's double bass and Seb Rochford's mesmeric drums to the classical string quartet. The result is stunning and driving music that is totally original.
'They rock' (The Guardian).
