Scott Murphy's Code Switchers


Doors 7.30pm - 10.30pm


Scott Murphy’s Code-Switchers is a reunion of long time collaborators and
friends featuring five of Scotland’s finest young musicians. It brings
together the experiences and musical identities of
Luca Manning, Scott
Murphy, Alan Benzie, Gus Stirrat and Stephen Henderson, to create an
intoxicating telepathic musical interchange.
Scott Murphy (formally Fat-Suit, Graham Costello’s Strata in Scotland) has
been living and working in Asia over the past 3 years (performing with the
likes of Will Vinson, John Stowell, Tony Lakatos, Jasmine Chen and Q
Sound). Here, he has experienced a multitude of varied and vibrant
cultures from which he has been inspired to write a selection of new
music. Drawing influence from the jungles of Thailand, the food courts of
Malaysia and the neon-lit back streets of Hong Kong, this music is a joyful
convergence of human life 6000 miles away. This is a rare performance
from Scott on our side of the world following a year where he has
appeared at the Singapore Jazz Festival, the Hong Kong Jazz Marathon, the
Borneo Jazz Festival and on the likes of MTV Asia.
The cream of sub-30 Scottish Jazz joins Scott for this date including award
winning Scottish vocalist Luca Manning, former Young Scottish Jazz
Musician of the year Alan Benzie, Animal Society and Fat-Suit bassist Gus
Stirrat and Square One’s Stephen Henderson behind the kit.
