An evening of exploration - just what can happen when you take four of our best jazz musicians and a handful of the of the best known tunes in jazz and light the blue touch paper. The Bristol based saxophonist and composer/arranger Kevin Figes has invited the multi award winning pianist Dave Newton to join him in a new quartet line-up dedicated to the exploration of the great 'jazz standards' - those truly memorable compositions, famous popular songs and Broadway show tunes that jazz musicians have used as inspiration for improvisation through every period in the development of this music we call jazz. The band also features two of Kevin's long-time collaborators the brilliant bassist Riaan Vosloo and the excellent Mark Whitlam on drums. Expect an evening of beautiful tunes with a good helping of inspired reinvention, deconstructed harmonies and subtly tweaked melodies.
