Bebop Spoken There

Brian Dee: "I feel my generation had one advantage over today's players in that we were not musically educated in colleges, so we all sounded different. I could tell who it was just by the sound." - (Jazz Rag, Summer 2020).

Matt Anderson Quartet May 2012 U.K. Tour


“melodic standards and original tunes… impressive throughout” Jazz UK, Dec/Jan 2011/12

This coming May, the Matt Anderson Quartet will embark on an extensive U.K. tour which will take the band up and down the whole country, from Edinburgh in the north to London in the south.
Following their 2011 regional tour supported by Jazz Yorkshire and attracting the acclaim of audiences and promoters across the area, the Leeds-based foursome have cemented their reputation as one of the most exciting contemporary jazz ensembles in the North of England.
The quartet in its current form was set up by Jazz Yorkshire ‘Futures’ saxophonist Matt Anderson in 2010 after he graduated from Leeds College of Music with First Class Honours, also receiving the Sam Hood Rosebowl for Outstanding Performance (Jazz). He has since studied with Iain Ballamy and Stan Sulzmann, and was awarded ‘Young Musician of the Year’ at the Jazz Yorkshire Awards 2010.
Matt’s spacious and malleable compositions provide the perfect backdrop for the searching, flowing drumming of Sam Gardner and virtuosic guitar playing of Aubin Vanns. John Marley, one of the busiest bass players in the U.K., keeps the group thoroughly anchored during even their most intense moments. Playing mostly original music by Matt and the other band members, the music is informed by the great tradition of jazz saxophonists all the way from Sonny Rollins to Chris Cheek, whilst the band also takes interest in contemporary approaches to rhythm, harmony, melody and form.
You can follow the band’s progress on their tour blog, found at www.matt-anderson.org.uk, which will feature recorded samples of the gigs as they happen, photos and more.
