show: Friday 22 February, 9pm

The Rent was formed in 2008 to play the music of American composer and saxophonist, Steve Lacy. Starting in the late 1950s, Lacy used his intensive research into the then-neglected compositional œuvre of Thelonious Monk as a foundation on which to base a lifetime of thoroughly original music-making. The Rent approaches Lacy’s compositions with the same spirit. The group released 'Musique de Steve Lacy' on Ambiances Magnétiques in 2010. More recently, The Rent has added to its repertoire songs by Scott Thomson that are composed for Susanna Hood’s singing voice, but which the group, in her absence, plays as instrumentals.
