Iain Ballamy Quartet – Jazz at the Cathedral Hotel
Venue: Cathedral Hotel
Wednesday 19 February 2020: 8.00pm
Lichfield Arts in partnership with Lichfield Jazz supported by Jazz WM
Iain Ballamy is an internationally recognised saxophonist and composer who has been variously described as urbane, original, freethinking and uncompromising. His work is contemporary with both strong jazz and classical references and yet un-encumbered by formality and tradition. He has worked with many cutting-edge figures of today’s contemporary jazz scene and has appeared in clubs worldwide and many jazz festivals including Berlin, North Sea, Saarfelden, Montreux, Montreal, Vancouver and Florence.
His new quartet features some of the UK’s finest musicians with pianist Jason Rebello, Percy Pursglove (trumpet/double bass) and Mark Williams (drums). They all combine together to produce the truly unmistakably Ballamy sound sensibly and finely executed. A concert not too be missed.
