Jazz at HEART presents Matt Anderson Quartet

Jazz at HEART presents Matt Anderson Quartet


Through December and January, saxophonist and award-winning composer Matt Anderson’s Quartet will be touring in the North, South West and London, exploring new original material ahead of an upcoming album recording in 2020. They will also play music
from their 2018 critically-acclaimed release ‘Rambling,’ which won praise from the likes of Jazzwise, BBC Radio 3 and Jazz FM for its “outstanding,” melodic writing and “uniformly excellent playing”, all fronted by Anderson’s warm tenor sound.

The band also features Alberto Palau (Charles McPherson, Jean Toussaint, Peter Bernstein) on piano, Jay Davis (Big Bad Wolf, Alex Hitchcock Quintet) on drums and Will Harris (Michelson Morley, Alan Barnes, Dave Newton) on double-bass. Rooted in a deep love and
respect for the jazz tradition from Sonny Rollins to Wayne Shorter, Matt’s music also explores influences from the folk music of his rural upbringing in the North Yorkshire Moors, alongside bluesy, country strains reminiscent of Bill Frisell and British and European jazz.

This tour comes off the back of recent performances by the band at Jamboree, Barcelona and Jimmy Glass, Valencia, as well as a 22-date U.K. tour in 2018 and shows at Amsterdam’s
Bimhuis and London’s Vortex.

“Memorable melodies, adeptly interwoven influences… unhurriedly stylish… This is solidly-crafted small group jazz that knows its history, but wears its learning lightly.” Jon Turney, London Jazz News
