Award winning saxophonist Martin Speake, one of the country's most fluent and creative musicians and composers, brings another quartet of top international jazz musicians to Sheffield. Featuring acclaimed pianist and arranger Hans Koller, this band is backed by the excellent Danish rhythm section of bassist Anders Christensen and drummer Anders Mogensen. Expect intelligent, searching modern jazz underpinned by lyricism and the subtlety of both the compositions and the improvised melodies.
“A saxophonist with an unusual turn of phrase, a persuasively gentle sound … Martin Speake is not just a distinctive improviser but a striking composer too” – John Fordham, The Guardian
