Jazz At The Tree - Martin Pyne Quartet on Friday 25th March 2022

MPQ formed in 2020 and will be releasing their second album , A New Pavan, in May, but thanks to the pandemic they have only just had the chance to start playing live.

For this gig you can expect an eclectic set of melodic original compositions including atmospheric ballads, African and Arabic grooves, hints of blues and Americana, as well as playful Monkish swing.

Martin Pyne’s solo drums and vibes album “Spirits Of Absent Dancers” was named by critic Richard Williams writing in The Guardian as one of the best albums of 2020

“In terms of percussion improvisation, try to imagine something that runs from the Zen sound-painting of Frank Perry to the light swing of Billy Higgins. There’s nothing loud, nothing showy, nothing esoteric. Just a delight in the deft touch of a stick, a mallet, a finger or a wire brush on metal, skin or wood, and in the process of transforming sound into a sense of movement.

The quartet’s debut album “Rickety Racket” was also well received

“it’s a glorious synergy of wafting, melodic tunes (with the blithe immediacy of 1960s recordings) and impish free-spiritedness …… the feel-good, mischief and effortless musicianship of Rickety Racket is, quite simply, blissful.
