the Sam Braysher Quartet
Expect an evening of beautiful music, perfect for a summer's evening.
Sam will be joined by @nickcostleywhite on guitar, Dave Green on bass and Steve Brown on the drums.
London-based alto saxophonist Sam Braysher has received widespread acclaim for the two albums released under his own name, both of which feature renowned international collaborators. Golden Earrings, with American pianist Michael Kanan, was described as “delightful and surprising” by Dave Gelly in the Observer, while his recent trio album with Jorge Rossy (Brad Mehldau Trio) and Tom Farmer, was praised in Jazzwise as “a triumph of intelligence and sentiment”.
For this concert, Sam is joined by an all-star London rhythm section. Steve Brown is a long-time member of Scott Hamilton’s quartet and has accompanied other jazz luminaries including Barry Harris, Benny Golson and Harry ‘Sweets’ Edison. Dave Green is a legend of British jazz: house bassist at Ronnie Scott’s in the 1960s, played with Sonny Rollins, Ben Webster and Coleman Hawkins. Completing the band is acclaimed young guitarist Nick Costley-White.
The quartet will look at lesser-known items from the American and jazz canon, including compositions by the likes of George Gershwin, Kurt Weill and Leonard Bernstein.
"I can’t think of another alto saxophonist with a sound quite like Sam Braysher’s” Dave Gelly, The Observer
