Bebop Spoken There

Charlie Musselwhite: "I used to see these posters in the windows of the [Chicago] blues clubs advertising Elmore James and Muddy Waters which knocked me out. I was making a note of the addresses and at night I'd go back and listen to the blues until 4-5 in the morning." - (Blues Matters! Aug/Sep 2021)

The Wild Flower Sextet

The Wild Flower Sextet celebrates one of the greatest musicians and composers of all time, Wayne Shorter, famous for his contribution across the whole spectrum of jazz, from Art Blakey’s Jazz Messengers, through the Miles Davis Second Great Quintet and Weather Report to his new Quartet. The dynamic new sextet aims to capture some of the essence of Shorter’s approach and sound in a celebration of his music as well as with new material.
The band is led by saxophonist Matt Anderson, who graduated from Leeds College of Music in 2010 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. The Matt Anderson Quartet toured nationally in 2012, with JazzUK commenting: “melodic standards and original tunes… impressive throughout”.
Mark Chandler is one of the most sought-after trumpet players in the North and has worked with George Russell and Elvin Jones. Guitarist Alex Munk has recently finished his studies at the Royal Academy of Music, London and was awarded a Yamaha Jazz Scholarship in 2009. Pianist Jamil Sheriff is Principal Lecturer in jazz at Leeds College of Music, and is well known for his own projects such as his Octet and Big Band. Sam Vicary is an LCM graduate much in-demand as a double-bassist. Finally, Dave Walsh on drums can be heard in a variety of settings from the band of signer-songwriter Tom McRae to Stuart MacCallum’s new project ‘Distilled’.

A fine musician, but his contribution would be across the whole spectrum of MODERN Jazz, from Hard Bop onwards - Jazz didn't start in 1959............
