Hackensack: Rachel Head Sextet | Bush/Blanchfield Duo

  • Cafe Jazz 21 Saint Mary Street Cardiff, Wales, CF10 1PL United Kingdom (map)

Hackensack Sessions


As the flowering nucleus of life propels us through the undulating nebula of New, plumes of sound, peppered with the fresh sparks of connection, billow out from the ether.

Billowing, swirling, folding around people and places.

Placing people on the periwinkle pivots of the plane of existence - purposeful and persistent, poised and pronounced, perplexing and proud.

The music speaks! The music thrives! Come and see! Come all and see!

Hackensack is a double bill night dedicated to the fresh and the new and occurs on the first Thursday of every month during the students' term times.

A piano, a saxophone, two people, lots of music, lots of fun, a teaspoon of black pepper and a twist of lime for that zesty finish.
