Nikki Iles

Iles is one of the most refreshing and promising figures to have emerged in the UK in recent times,with a liquid sound and supple,obliquely resolved phrasing as an improviser…… (The Guardian)

…..And Iles is a skillful improviser,although this is often eclipsed by her own bigger scale composition.But at London’s Vortex on the opening show of a 14 date tour,Iles displayed the rhythmic suprises,shape shifting phrases,playful dialogue with partners and a mix of ruggedness and reflection that at times make her comparable with the great John Taylor. (The Guardian)

An intriguingly varied and very original programme and one which marked Iles as an arranger of considerable talent and as a gifted composer. (The Times-review from the Purcell Room)
