DJ Lubi's Jazzland Sessions are proud to feature one of Leeds' biggest and best cult music ensembles led by maverick bass player Fergus Quill (The Fergus Quill Trio, Skwid Ink, UGETSU, Fergus Quill Electric Noise Ensemble). We're talking about the rarely seen and heard huge experimental jazz-and-beyond ensemble Ferg's Imaginary Big Band. Here's a more detailed account of who they are and what they do.
Fergus Quill's Imaginary Big Band (aka Ferg's Imaginary Big Band) are a 22+ piece semi-fictional noise machine who are part of the burgeoning left-field independent Leeds based record label, Tight Lines. Initially inspired by the cosmic jazz legend and musician/band leader Sun Ra, Ferg's Imaginary Big Band is a semi-fictional large ensemble whose primary aim is to bring big band music kicking and screaming into the 22nd century. The IBB play rowdy and always huge sounding arrangements of an incredibly diverse selection of tunes from composers including Duke Ellington, Sun Ra, The Rajasthan Express, Art Ensemble Of Chicago alongside a growing pad of original music composed by Fergus and other members of the group. Fergus Quill and his band are on a mission to make Britain weird again.
