Lucid Dreamers are the first band on when east London jazz club the Vortex reopens on Friday 21 May playing to two houses restricted in size given covidian regulations. All leaders in their own right the band's singer and leader Brigitte Beraha known for her work in Babelfish lands in the experimental Norma Winstone style tradition and like Winstone can stop you in your tracks with her quiet but devastating intent found in the most unexpected places.
Tim Giles, known for his work with Richard Fairhurst in Hungry Ants, is on drums and electronics.
Completing the band is pianist Alcyona out of the Birmingham scene, whose style is a little in the Joanne Brackeen and Zoe Rahman mould, and a former pianist-in-residence downstairs in Derek's then part of a fine duo with the great drummer Paul Clarvis who is himself the drummer in Babelfish.
