Bebop Spoken There

Ethan Iverson: "Oscar Peterson famously said that Bud [Powell] played just too many wrong notes. He was really critical of Bud as a player, which I think is not right." - (DownBeat March 2021)

606 Club This Saturday: BRANDON ALLEN – STANLEY TURRENTINE PROJECT. Sat 20 Feb. 8:00pm

(Press release)

Brandon Allen is an expat Australian saxophonist who has made quite an impression on the scene since taking up residence in London. To give you a sense of just how good he is, he has performed with the likes of Eric Clapton, Mica Paris, Jools Holland, BBC Big Band and Omar among many other high-profile artists, and is a member of the Kyle Eastwood Band. 

The show this evening takes as its subject a sax player whose brilliance has stood the test of time: Stanley Turrentine. The repertoire will be drawn from Turrentine’s releases on the Bluenote and CTI labels, along with Turrentine’s renditions of rock/pop hits of the 60’s and 70’s as reimagined by Brandon’s exciting new quartet (Will Barry-piano/keys, Conor Chaplin-bass & Dave Ingamells-drums). 

“Brandon Allen is arguably the most exciting tenor player in Britain today” Jazzwise.
