Shapeshifters at Bobiks - August 15.

(Press release*)


Shapeshifters is a contemporary jazz trio made up of three friends whose musical roots are grounded in the rich tradition of the genre. Anna Chandler (alto saxophone), Sam Quintana (bass) and Steve Hanley (drums) combine their musical backgrounds with influences from the likes of Charles Mingus, Fly Trio and the Tristano School. 

When playing together they embrace spontaneity, able to morph the direction of a piece at the flick of a switch and constantly challenging themselves to improvise fearlessly and unapologetically. Performing a mix of original material and unique takes on standard repertoire, the group produce a coherent narrative whilst keeping you on your toes as to what might happen next. 

Support comes from Paul Taylor, an accomplished pianist and keyboard player specialising in improvisation, The music is evocative, alluring and unique, combining unusual harmonies and sonorities with an original and fluid technique.
