Gilad Atzmon Jazz Quartet
Sunday, 25 October 14.00
This new, ground-breaking quartet features saxophonist Gilad Atzmon, bassist Jeremy Brown, drummer Stephen Keogh and Atzmon's long-time pianist Frank Harrison - all members of GMF's international team of world-class performers and educators.
Eschewing political rhetoric, Atzmon lets the music do the talking, relaxing into a skillful and witty dialogue with his versatile bandmates. Together they breathe new harmonic and rhythmic life into every composition they perform, transforming even the most well-worn jazz standards into scintillating originals - the true essence of real live jazz.
Double bill with Jack DeJohnette and John Surman.
