ANDY SHEPPARD QUARTET

December 2018

Andy Sheppard Quartet New Album " ROMARIA" to be released January 2018 on ECM.

International jazz star, ECM recording artist and Bristol resident Andy Sheppard is one of few British musicians to have made a significant impact on the international jazz scene, playing and writing for solo to big band and chamber orchestra. A serial collaborator, Andy has worked with some of the biggest names in jazz and is in huge demand for both his composing and for his legendary live performances.

Andy Sheppard bought his first saxophone at the age of nineteen after being introduced to the jazz music of John Coltrane, and has since established himself as one of Britain’s foremost tenor and soprano saxophonists, and is one of a very few soloists to have played in the big bands of all three of the greatest post-war jazz composers, Carla Bley, George Russell and Gil Evans.

This tour features works from his new album which will be released soon(ECM) and this new quartet sees Andy joined by Eivind Aarset (guitar and electronics), Michel Benita (bass) and Sebastien Rochford (drums).
