Ill Considered + Support from Bruno Heinen B2B Tom Kitchman (DJ Set)

This event is part of EFG London Jazz Festival 2023, the capital’s biggest pan-city music festival, taking place annually in November, which has long been acclaimed for showcasing a heady mix of talent from around the world. Widely acknowledged for delivering world-class artists and emerging stars, the Festival continues to take jazz to a massive audience, in one of UK’s landmark music events. Following an exceptional edition last year, EFG London Jazz Festival returns with a programme of live performances by an electrifying lineup of global stars, special collaborations, and the finest and freshest music. On Friday 10th November 2023 it is with great pleasure that we welcome Ill Considered to the Juju’s stage. Supporting the night is renowned musician Bruno Heinen, trading the keys for turntables with a rare DJ set, going B2B with Tom Kitchman.


Comprised of bassist Liran Donin (Led Bib), saxophonist Idris Rahman (Wildflower, Soothsayers) and producer/mixer/drummer Emre Ramazanoglu (David Holmes, Leo Abrahams, Noel Gallagher, Steam Down, Theon Cross, Wildflower, Etienne Daho) Ill Considered are not wasting any time.

Ferociously energetic and relentlessly productive, the outfit recorded and released nine albums in two years between 2017 and 2019, tearing through an improvised yet fully-formed repertoire in single-take sessions that display a unique versatility and sense of invention.
Fusing the dynamism of the UK jazz scene with improvised punk energy, the band’s sound is not easily pigeonholed. “The Ill Considered sound is wide and varied, and potentially limitless in sonic scope,” Rahman explains. “We’re looking to express our emotions to the fullest possible extent and to make the resulting music coherent and cathartic for any listener that wishes to join us.”
Coming from three generations of classical musicians, Bruno Heinen started playing piano at the age of four. He started composing pieces early on, and was introduced to the world of jazz through the music of Bill Evans by his uncle (jazz pianist Johannes Heinen) in his late teens. His compositional voice has been informed by his love of composers from Duke Ellington to Béla Bártok and from Wayne Shorter to György Ligeti. He has worked with acclaimed artists from Shabaka Hutchings to Sir Simon Rattle, and from ESKA to DJ Vadim.
