Special guest pianist Ivo Neame joins great sax player
Saxophonist and award-winning composer Matt Anderson’s Quartet will be touring the North, South West and London through December and January, exploring new original material ahead of an new CD recording in 2020. Their previous 2018 release ‘Rambling’ won praise from the likes of Jazzwise, BBC Radio 3 and Jazz FM for its “outstanding,” melodic writing and “uniformly excellent playing” all fronted by Anderson’s warm tenor sound. The band also features special guest Ivo Neame [Phronesis] on piano, Jay Davis (Big Bad Wolf, Alex Hitchcock Quintet) on drums and Will Harris (Michelson Morley, Alan Barnes, Dave Newton) on double-bass. Rooted in a deep love and respect for the jazz tradition from Sonny Rollins to Wayne Shorter, Matt’s music also explores influences from the folk music of his rural upbringing in the North Yorkshire Moors, alongside bluesy, country strains reminiscent of Bill Frisell and British and European jazz. This UK tour follows recent performances by the band in Barcelona, Valencia and Amsterdam’s Bimhuis.
