Bebop Spoken There

Tina May: "It's a broad umbrella, jazz, but to me there has to be improvisation. If that's not there, to me, it's not really jazz." - (Jazzwise March 2021)

Slowlight Quartet @ Hexham Jazz Club June 13.

How do they do it? How can you make complex, edgy, demanding music instantly engaging? Not only that, but music that is highly expressive and beautiful too?
Well, the Slowlight Quartet may comprise of four highly accomplished musicians; Tom Quilliam sax, Paul Loraine keys, Ian ‘Dodge’ Paterson bass and Jonathan Marriott drums, each with exceptional intonation, making beautiful sounds, but the whole is bigger than the parts. So it’s not a matter of just a locked in- tight as owt – rhythm section with a jaw droppingly wonderful saxophonist, but a band enmeshed in the communal groove. The Slowlight Quartet share a musical brain. Look them up on www.theslowlightquartet.co.uk and get yourself to a gig.
Hazel Hanley.
