Parrjazz presents The Matt Anderson Quartet + Jam on Tuesday 17th December 2019
“memorable melodies, adeptly interwoven influences… unhurriedly stylish... (Anderson) can deliver an ear-catching tenor sax flourish, but knows the value of understatement and uses it well. This is solidly-crafted small group jazz that knows its history, but wears its learning lightly.”
London-based saxophonist and Dankworth Prize-winning composer Matt Anderson presents his quartet touring their new, critically-acclaimed release 'Rambling' on Jellymould Jazz. Since its launch in June 2018 at the hotbed of the creative London jazz scene, the Vortex Jazz Club, the album has 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 brings together seemingly distinct musical influences, for example exploring the common ground between the folk music reminiscent of Matt's rural upbringing in the North Yorkshire Moors, the bluesy, country strains of Bill Frisell and Scandinavian jazz, culminating in a lyrical and personal Afro-Celtic sound world.
The band has performed across the UK as well as appearing as finalists at the Keep an Eye International Jazz Competition at Amsterdam’s Bimhuis. The new album follows Matt's debut, Wild Flower, which was described by Selwyn Harris of Jazzwise as 'their own unique stamp on Shorter's very personal repertoire... of a quality that resonates with its inspirational source... Enjoyably un-pretentious.'
