About the event

Jon Lloyd - saxophone, John Law - piano, Henrik Jensen - bass, Alex Goodyear - drums

The new Jon Lloyd Quartet plays contemporary European jazz. They improvise on Jon’s sensitive and melodic compositions, creating a rich tapestry of sound. The quartet comprises musicians well known on the UK and European scene. The music has clear harmonic ideas and emphasis on melodic themes. There are minimalist motifs and repeating figures, with bass lines and extended grooves. Jon’s new music is undoubtably accessible, but still with an exploratory verve, more a European jazz aesthetic.

“A saxophone delivery as persuasive as a speaking voice. Lloyd should be seen and heard more often” — Brian Moreton, Penguin Guide to Jazz

“Powerful and magical music” — Downbeat, USA

“Ambitious and virtuosic... Jon Lloyd is one of the most striking writers at the sharp end of British jazz and improvisation” — John Fordham, The Guardian, UK
