WESTON STUDIO

Orphy Robinson Presents Van Morrison's Astral Weeks
With Zara McFarlane


Tickets (max 8 seats per booking): 
£8

Age Guidance: 14+ (No under 2s).

Orphy Robinson presents his exclusive Jazz and Soul interpretation of Van Morrison’s 1968 masterpiece ‘Astral Weeks’ in celebration of the 50th Anniversary of its release. With its magical combination of jazz, folk and soul influences this album is widely regarded as one of the most influential recordings of 20th century music.

UK vibes player and multi-Instrumentalist Orphy Robinson brings together some of the UK’s top jazz players to reinterpret the transcendental arrangements of ‘Astral Weeks’. Building on his award-winning tribute to Bobby Hutcherson and his role as Musical Director/Producer for Carleen Anderson’s ‘Cage Street Memorial’ Album and Tour, this is his most ambitious project yet.

Joining Orphy is Mobo winner singer-songwriter, Zara McFarlane. Refreshingly enchanting and cited as one of the UK’s foremost Black British Jazz Vocalist, Zara has three critically acclaimed albums to her name, inhabiting an unusual musical landscape, fearlessly exploring original material and reworking well known classics from the worlds of Jazz and Jamaican music. Through infectious rhythms and socio-conscious lyrics, Zara explores musical possibilities of British-Jamaican identity.

Yn y sioe hon bydd Orphy Robinson yn defnyddio jazz a chanu'r enaid i gyflwyno'i ddehongliad arbennig o 'Astral Weeks', campwaith Van Morrison o 1968, a hynny i nodi hanner canmlwyddiant rhyddhau'r record. Gyda'i gyfuniad hudolus o gyffyrddiadau jazz, gwerin a chanu'r enaid, mae'r albwm hwn yn cael ei ystyried ymhlith recordiau mwyaf dylanwadol erioed yr ugeinfed ganrif.

Bydd Orphy Robinson, yr offerynnwr amryddawn, yn cynnull rhai o chwaraewyr jazz gorau'r Deyrnas Unedig er mwyn ail-ddehongli trefniadau trosgynnol 'Astral Weeks'. Gan ddatblygu ar ei deyrnged nodedig i Bobby Hutcherson, a'i rôl fel Cyfarwyddwr Cerddorol/Cynhyrchydd ar Albwm a Thaith 'Cage Street Memorial' Carleen Anderson, dyma'i brosiect mwyaf uchelgeisiol hyd yma.

Yn ymuno ag Orphy fe fydd Zara McFarlane, y gantores-gyfansoddwraig sydd wedi ennill gwobr Mobo. Mae ei gwaith yn drawiadol o swynol, a hithau wedi’i henwi’n un o gantorion jazz du mwyaf blaenllaw Prydain. Cyhoeddodd dri albwm hyd yma, sydd wedi ennill cryn glod, a’r rheini’n ein cyflwyno i dirlun cerddorol anarferol wrth arbrofi â deunydd gwreiddiol ac ailweithio clasuron y byd jazz a cherddoriaeth Jamaica. Drwy ei rhythmau heintus a’i geiriau cymdeithasol, mae Zara yn agor y drws ar bosibiliadau cerddorol hunaniaeth Brydeinig-Jamaicaidd.
