The Ilkley Suite [Video]

Here is the lead song ‘Cut From Stone’ from The Ilkley Suite, which will be formally released on 33 Jazz Records on 6th July. The suite was commissioned by Ilkley Jazz Festival to be performed at the event which has unfortunately been cancelled this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Suite was composed by Jamil Sheriff and features the festival’s Artistic Director Beverley Beirne on vocals. Compositions are inspired by Ilkley, it’s landscape and mythologies. ‘Cut From Stone’ is about the both ancient and more modern markings left on the stones above the town.
