New Focus Duo on Saturday 17th February 2018
Saxophonist Konrad Wiszniewski and pianist Euan Stevenson’s New Focus is one of the most appealing, most beautifully realised projects to emerge on the Scottish jazz scene in recent years.
Originally conceived as a fiftieth anniversary tribute to saxophone giant Stan Getz’s 1961 classic album, Focus, the group has developed a style all of its own, showcasing Scottish National Jazz Orchestra saxophone star Wiszniewski’s ravishing tone and inventive, soulfully communicative playing
and Stevenson’s elegant, cool and purposeful pianism in compositions that ooze melodic richness and possess a flowing, cinematic quality.
The duo edition (there are quartet and nonet versions also) presents a wonderfully intimate and personal musical experience, with Wisniewski and Stevenson's original compositions complemented by imaginatively refreshed standards resulting in superbly accessible, hauntingly memorable jazz for the 21st century.
The church setting adds a great bonus.
