John Law's
"Re-Creations"

Acclaimed pianist John Law’s ‘Re-Creations’ project is a quartet playing unique and imaginative reinterpretations of tunes from the worlds of jazz, pop and classical music. Featuring Parliamentary Jazz Award winner Sam Crockatt on saxophone, their three recorded albums are a blend of jazz classics, from the likes of Monk, Miles and Gershwin, alongside tunes from pop, rock and indie – Pink Floyd, Beatles, The Jam, Stevie Wonder and Radiohead, with the occasional classical piece. Expect a highly accessible eclectic mix of styles, distinctive arrangements and skilful, inventive soloing with John’s own dazzling keyboard playing underpinning this harmonically adventurous project. 

John Law turned away from classical piano to pursue jazz and improvised music and has been acclaimed for a wide variety of contemporary jazz and classical projects. After initial studies with Simon Purcell his early interest lay in freely improvised music. He performed with Evan Parker, Louis Moholo and Barry Guy, among others. Later John turned towards a more recognisably contemporary jazz area working with Tim Garland, Martin Speake, Paul Clarvis, Julian Siegel, Julian Nicholas and others, though his work has continued to include references to classical, freely improvised and avant-garde music.
