UK: DELTA SAXOPHONE QUARTET with GWILYM SIMCOCK LAUNCHED AT THE PIZZA EXPRESS JAZZ CLUB ON TUESDAY 9TH FEBRUARY

DELTA SAXOPHONE QUARTET with GWILYM SIMCOCK

After a chance meeting at Stoke City Football Ground saxophonist Chris Caldwell and Gwilym Simcock hatched a plan to re-work the music of the prog-rock band King Crimson as part of the Delta Saxophone Quartet's 30th birthday celebrations. They commissioned Gwilym to write a new piece and to arrange some of the original King Crimson pieces for the quartet and piano.

Gwilym selected source material from across King Crimson’s career, reflecting three very different line-ups in the group’s long history. Rather than simply scoring out the Crimson music, he aimed to create opportunities to transport it to different places – in his own words, to ‘open it up’. The resulting music is intricate and agile, imaginative and exciting.

THE ALBUM WILL BE LAUNCHED AT THE PIZZA EXPRESS JAZZ CLUB ON TUESDAY 9TH FEBRUARY AND AVAILABLE IN THE SHOPS FROM 26TH FEB.
 
I hope you can join us for the celebrations.
