1224 Project

1224 Project is a London-based guitar-bass-drums trio that writes and performs electrifying, groove-fuelled contemporary jazz.

The band’s latest album “What Happened to The Foot” was released in November 2010.

Long-standing collaborators Dylan Kay, David Bouet and Leslee Booth have played together in various projects over the years, forming 1224 Project in 2008 as a vehicle for their original compositions.

The Project’s music is carefully crafted in regular rehearsals and features odd meters, occasional slide guitar and effects, sinuous 6-string bass and death-defying drumming.

The trio keep an open mind about style, their music falling somewhere amongst the categories of jazz, rock, fusion and funk. Their concern is with melody, interesting harmony/voicings and rhythmic interest. Many of the tunes come from a desire to write music that challenges and inspires them as musicians.

If you like artists like Medeski, Martin and Wood, John Scofield, Pat Metheny, Kurt Rosenwinkel, Bill Frisell or Wayne Krantz then you’ll enjoy their take on music that grooves, with enough surprises to keep it interesting for everyone.
