Matt Anderson

Matt Anderson Quartet

Matt Anderson - Saxes
Matt Robinson- Piano
Will Harris - Bass
Jay Davis - Drums

London-based saxophonist and award-winning composer Matt Anderson presents a new quartet touring their forthcoming release, ‘Rambling,’ . The band seeks to bring together seemingly distinct musical influences, for example exploring the common ground between the folk music reminiscent of Matt’s rural upbringing in the North Yorkshire Moors, the bluesy, country strains of Bill Frisell and Scandinavian jazz, culminating in a lyrical and honest Afro-Celtic sound world.
Tues 4th September £13/£8/£5
Sam Leak

Sam Leak Trio

Sam Leak - Keyboards
Simon Read - Bass
Will Glaser - Drums

The Sam Leak Trio perform contemporary jazz with a gospel-tinged, and folk-inspired, freedom and abandon. Conjuring up the joy and emotion typified by Paul Bley and Keith Jarrett's 1960s trios, the ensemble maintains a sense of the tradition whilst performing music that is very much rooted in the present. Featuring Simon Read on double bass, and Will Glaser on drums, the band perform a mixture of Leak's compositions and some lesser played compositions from their favourite musicians. In 2016/17 the trio toured the UK, playing in Birmingham, Fishguard, Southampton, Leeds and elsewhere. A high point of this tour was a performance at Ronnie Scotts' prestigious International Piano Trio Festival. The trio are currently showcasing Leak's composition 'Adrift,' recorded for Jellymould Jazz in duet with Dan Tepfer - described by Marcus O'Dair as 'astonishing.' ""..."The Royal Academy of Music's jazz programme has produced a remarkable crop of newcomers in recent times: notably the Mercury-nominated pianists Gwilym Simcock and Kit Downes. Now comes Sam Leak, an artist of comparable promise...Leak is a subtle storyteller who keeps the grooves and colours changing." " John Fordham
