John Law has been described as - “one of the UK’s most imaginative and versatile jazz pianists.” - International Piano 2014. John started Re-Creations in 2016, as a counterfoil to his original compositions group Congregation, which mixes contemporary jazz with electronics and backing tracks. Re-Creations began as a fun project, with the aim of playing lots of different tunes from different genres. It very quickly developed artistically to the point that it began to rival Congregation in terms of artistic excellence and spontaneous creativity. The arrangements became more complex and interesting, while the fact that audiences almost always knew the tunes meant that the group was at the same time very accessible. The quartet’s repertoire also includes, as well as jazz classics from Monk, Miles Davis, Gershwin, tunes from pop/rock/indie (Pink Floyd, Beatles, The Jam, Stevie Wonder, Bon Iver, Michael Jackson, Radiohead). Classical pieces have also started appearing in the group’s repertoire, for example their versions of the Kyrie from Rossini’s Petite Messe Solennelle, Debussy’s Claire De Lune and Satie’s Gymnopédie. The band features Parliamentary Jazz Award Winner Sam Crockatt on saxophones, John Law - piano, James Agg - bass and Paolo Adamo - drums. They will be promoting two new albums in the Re-Creations series: Volume 2 (solo piano) and Volume 3 (quartet).
