Waldo’s Gift is a contemporary instrumental trio of three young stars of the latest generation of Bristol-based jazz talent. Their hybrid of math, electronic and jazz styles ‘owes as much to Flying Lotus as John Coltrane’.
Waldo’s Gift is the result of three like-minded musicians that have been given the time and space to let their sound naturally take shape. Formed in Bristol in 2017, the band were drawn together by the offer of a weekly residency at The Gallimaufry, which prides itself in providing a space for the most boundary pushing parts of the city’s scene.
The Hut, their latest four-track EP and first for Black Acre Records, sees the band take a step away from their improvisatory roots towards a more refined studio sound while retaining the energy and spontaneity of the residency that shaped them. The EP cements Waldo’s Gift’s position as not only one of the most engaging live acts in the UK, but as considered composers, arrangers and producers in their own right.
