About the event
The Jon Lloyd Quartet play contemporary, melodic European jazz. Fans of the ECM record label will know this style of music as being contemplative, melodic, mesmerising and even calming! In fact people who don’t really like jazz often love this music…
Jon has been following this creative musical path for over a decade, first with his quintet featuring drummer Asaf Sirkis and bassist Tom Farmer, and recently with great composer and pianist John Law’s multi-media project “Renaissance” (seen and heard at Frome Festival a few years ago). Jon has been active on the UK music scene for 30 years!
“A saxophone delivery as persuasive as a speaking voice. Lloyd should be seen and heard more often” – Brian Morton, Penguin Guide to Jazz on CD
This new quartet play group compositions by Jon Lloyd and features Jon on tenor and soprano saxophones, accompanied by stunning pianist John Law and the young, gifted rhythm section of bassist Nick Pini and drummer Alex Goodyear. A new recording is soon to be released. Today’s concert is part of a short tour which also includes an appearance at this year’s Swanage Jazz festival.
