 Careful planning, and brilliant improvisation

To accompany Johanna Billing’s show Pulheim Jam Session Hollybush Gardens has invited Maggie Nicols, renowned jazz vocalist and improviser, for an evening of musical and social virtuosity. Nicols co-founded the seminal Feminist Improvising Group, an endeavour that has been described by the Canadian academic Julie Dawn Smith as a “sonic negotiation of eroticism, resistance, liberation, joy, pleasure, power, and agency, a multilayered call and response between individual improvisers and a community of listeners”. Nicols who has been active since the 60s continues to perform, teach and inspire.

Please join us this Wednesday the 22nd at 7 pm for a performative presentation to explore improvisation’s many layers. The evening will continue with a DJ set of music featured on Johanna Billing’s soundtrack from previous vinyl LPs.
