Since their formation in 1996 Partisans have been thrilling audiences with their ferociously energetic performances. Hailed as breaking the ground for the new wave of British jazz and described by BBC Radio Jazz on 3 as 'One of the most exciting all star experimental groups in Jazz today' The richly lyrical and strongly melodic compositions written by the leaders provide the framework and starting point, underpinned by the rock solid, freewheeling and supercharged rhythm section. Their critically acclaimed new album, “Nit de Nit”, recorded live at the Vortex Jazz Club, London on September 25 and 26, 2018 revisits some of Partisans' old, yet still very vital, numbers, all executed with astounding vibrancy and flair.
'Partisans were the highlight of the festival, jazz that makes you blink in its glare'- John Fordham,The Guardian, Cheltenham Jazz Festival
“Restless, almost reckless energy… delirious listening… consistently thrilling.” BBC Music Magazine
