WILSON/HUGGETT PROJECT (article first published : 2007-08-11)

Ikhishi Productions presents the Wilson Huggett Project live at Phansi Museum on August 16.

The Wilson/Huggett Project comprises Mark Huggett (London), Dan Wilson (Durban), Yngvil Vattn Guttu (Alaska) and Thor Kvande (Norway). Their music crosses a number of genres such as jazz, chill out, ambient and rock, with an approach that incorporates loop-based soundscapes and improvisation. They will perform tracks from Max Roach Park, one of SAFM DJ Richard Haslopís top 50 albums of 2006, which is to be released by Musketeer Records and available in record stores from the August 13.

The Wilson/Huggett group is a collaboration between a Durban-based bass player and sonic architect, an English drummer, a Norwegian trumpeter living in Alaska and others, and the result is as wide-ranging as that suggests, though musical grid references that include electric Miles Davis, Bill Laswell, South African and Native American chanting and European jazz fusions never detract from the recordís own impressive compositional essence.

The Wilson/Huggett Project performs at The Phansi Museum which hosts possibly some of the largest private collections of Southern African artifacts, displayed in Roberts House, a Victorian historical monument. Highlights of the museum include our life-size puppet room, ceiling of beads, Shangaan Sangoma room , earplugs, headrests, and various other treasures as well as contemporary wire baskets and modern sculptures.

The performance takes place on August 16 at 19h30. Entrance R30 includes snacks. A cash bar is available. Phansi Museum is at 41 Cedar Road, Glenwood, Durban (entrance on Frere Road). A carguard will be on duty. Reservations recommended and dress warmly! More information from Max on 031 206 2889 or 083 450 3270.
