ED JONES QUARTET
Riaan Vosloo - Double Bass /, Composition
Tim Giles - Drums
Performance Starts at 7.30pm
This current lineup was formed in 2011 and initially inspired by the music of Wayne Shorter this quartet has branched out to feature original new compositions from Jones and bassist Riaan Vosloo with outstanding support from Ross Stanley on Piano and Tim Gilles on Drums. During this time through many tours, the Quartet have formed a unique identity of powerfully driven fire music with atmospheric improvised soundscapes drawing both from original compositions with arrangements and fresh interpretations of the American songbook repertoire.
The band have not been in the studio since the 2017 release of the critically acclaimed "For Your Ears Only" (Impossible Ark Records) so news of the new compositions and new album for 2024 has caused quite a stir in jazz circles. This is going to be a very special night.
"A formidable saxophonist. Ed Jones may have hit his highest profile through his work with bands US3 and Incognito, but he's an improviser to his fingertips, a player of forceful imagination, and one of the UK's most distinctive saxophonists." - John Fordham The Guardian.
"The Vigorous, sometimes downright volcanic tenor sound of Ed Jones has long been one of the great live delights of British Jazz. His barnstorming 'terrier with a rat' approach raises the music's temperature whenever he solos ". - Chris Parker, Jazzwise.
