Algorisms is the brainchild of singist Alison Limerick & keyboarder Gordon Hulbert. Taking songs that speak to them, this London jazz duo create unique and personal interpretations of each one and use them as a springboard for improvisation. Sometimes they add a rhythm section.
London Jazz Duo
Based in London, their music is an eclectic mix of styles, brought together in a soulful jazz mélange. The Nu-Soul, Acid Jazz and Electronic Dance background of Alison mixes with the Funk, Gospel, Classic Soul, World and Western Classical influences that represent Gordon’s musical journey. Picking from their own list of favourite Jazz, Pop and Film Soundtrack standards, our London jazz duo treat each song in its own unique way, exploring time signatures, reharmonisation, lyrical re-writes and much more besides.
Their arrangement of Paul McCartney’s ‘Blackbird’ is described as ‘excellent’ by London Jazz News and it is a joyful and energetic celebration of that song. It juxtaposes breathy textures and cascading solos from the sax with vocals ranging from an intimate whisper to a triumphant roar, all underpinned by rich and rhythmic chordal work from the piano and solid grooving from the drums and bass. about Algorisms – Nu Jazz Duo
