Fringe Jazz presents - PERDATO with JOHN O'GALLAGHER
There was an extraordinarily superb gig at FRINGE JAZZ back in February when the brilliant American alto saxophonist JOHN O'GALLAGHER made a guest appearance with PERDATO. Well having checked diaries and moved various commitments around we've persuaded John to make a return visit. The choice of material was fascinating back in February with the evening starting with an edgy rendition of Keith Jarrett's "Spiral Dance" and ending with a sublime treatment of the old Beach Boys hit "God Only Knows". John O'Gallagher combined with Percy Pursglove - Trumpet & Double Bass, Dan Moore - Keyboards and Tony Orrell - Drums is a potent recipe for an exhilarating evening of music. Don't miss it this is going to a very special gig.
JOHN O'GALLAGHER is considered one of the most compelling alto saxophonist and composers at work today on the New York jazz scene. He is known for an innovative style which pushes the boundaries of jazz while rooted in it's tradition. He has worked with Joe Henderson (winning a Grammy for the recording Joe Henderson Big Band), Maria Schneider, Kenny Wheeler, Richie Beirach, Drew Gress, Ben Monder, Bob Belden, Hans Koller, Martin Speake and many more. In this country he best known for his Festival appearances with the Quartet of drummer, and fellow American, Jeff Williams and for his excellent albums on Whirlwind Records. John rejoined Jeff Williams Quartet on their UK tour in 2016 and in January this year his latest CD on Whirlwind - 'The John O'Gallagher Trio, Live in Brooklyn' was released to critical acclaim.
