NEW VIDEO: Matt Anderson Quartet – Iris (St. Mark’s Series 3/4)

This new video of my group the Matt Anderson Quartet finds us playing an arrangement of the beautiful Wayne Shorter composition ‘Iris.’ It’s the third in a series of four videos I’m calling the ‘St. Mark’s Series’ which I’ll be releasing weekly over the coming month, and is filmed ‘live in the studio’ at the St. Mark’s Church, Marylebone, where we did a session with the Royal Academy of Music recording team.

The quartet features myself on tenor saxophone, Ashley Henry on piano, Will Harris on double-bass and Jay Davis on drums, and this is a relatively new project which we started last winter while three of us (myself, Ashley and Will) were studying on the MA course at the Academy. Jay is also an alumnus of the same course.
The band puts an emphasis on original writing, with arrangements often conceived together as a group, and takes inspiration from sources as wide-ranging as Wayne Shorter, folk music of the British Isles, the European jazz scene and groove/rock music. During our time at the Academy we have also received coaching as a band from F-IRE Collective founder Barak Schmool.
Stay tuned for more new music over the coming weeks!
