Recent winners of the Peter Whittingham Jazz Award 2010 and featured as "Taking Off" in Jazzwise Magazine, WorldService Project come to Nottingham to deliver their own brand of "infectiously enthusiastic" (Chris Parker) jazz/punk.
Formed in 2009, the band have a wealth of experience in jazz, rock, funk, contemporary classical music and free improvisiation - centred around the compositions of keyboardist and band-leader, Dave Morecroft.
"WSP…delivered around two hours of exciting and deeply satisfying music….and the band stoked up to an apocalyptical crescendo." - Ron Burnett, York Press.
"Great new band from the cutting edge of British jazz."- Andy Roberts, Radio Cardiff.
"WorldService Project perform an utterly fascinating mix of grooving punk rhythm section with impassioned improvising horns, just on the edge of madness, sounding like the Art Ensemble Of Chicago got into a fight with Black Flag at a party hosted by Daevid Allen. Seriously intelligent, probing blowing, and deep, intense grooves make this, well, brilliant. Music to move to as well as to listen to." - LiveUnsigned.com
