Steve Wilson/Bruce Barth Quartet
Any performance New York greats Steve Wilson (alto sax) and Bruce Barth (piano), offers “selflessness, a fresh and well–made take on the tradition, and the ability to reference a broad spectrum of strategies and styles without falling prey to pastiche or sacrificing an original voice.” (Detroit Free Press). This rare and important London appearance will feature Steve and Bruce at the helm of a powerful and creative quartet including bassist Mark Hodgson, and drummer Stephen Keogh – and they’re guaranteed to rock the house!
Steve Wilson, wrote Ben Ratliff in The New York Times, is “among the best New York jazz has to offer.”
Wilson has attained ubiquitous status in the studio and on the stage with the greatest names in jazz, as well as critical acclaim as a bandleader in his own right. A musician's musician, Wilson has brought his distinctive sound to more than 150 recordings led by such celebrated and wide-ranging artists as Chick Corea, George Duke, Michael Brecker, Dave Holland, Dianne Reeves, Gerald Wilson, Maria Schneider, Joe Henderson, and Mulgrew Miller among many others. Bruce Barth is without doubt one of the great jazz pianists of our time. Deeply rooted in the jazz tradition, his music reflects the depth and breadth of his life and musical experiences. He has had extended collaborations with Tony Bennett, Terell Stafford, Luciana Souza, Stanely Turrentine, Steve Wilson and David Sánchez and was a long standing member of the Terence
Blanchard Quintet. In 1992, Bruce played piano on-screen in Spike Lee’s Malcolm X.
