Neon Quartet ‘Catch Me’

Neon Quartet is a new group featuring one of the UK s finest and most respected saxophonists and composers Stan Sulzmann in the company of three of the most in demand and versatile young musicians on the British scene. Completing the quartet are BBC rising star and Mercury Music Prize Nominee Kit Downes on piano and two members of London s Loop collective Jim Hart on vibes and drummer Tim Giles. The group is a true collaboration with music written by all four musicians. It is chamber music for the 21st century. Melodic and playful with a sense of openness whilst having a very contemporary edge. Neon Quartet was reborn out of its previous incarnation Neon which was a trio led by Stan Sulzmann featuring Jim Hart on Vibes and Gwilym Simcock on piano. This group recorded for Basho Records in 2007 and was a very popular group playing in clubs and at festivals in the UK over the last couple of years. Gwilym s success as a soloist and composer led to him give up his tenure with the group but as one door closes two have opened and so Sulzmann and Hart orchestrated the metamorphosis in to the current line up. Neon Quartet have built on the virtuosic interplay that was a fundamental part of the Neon sound and have taken it to a new, exciting dimension.

 Davis was a man of few words. When he did speak, his words often had a similar effect to a hand grenade being lobbed into the room. In 1987, he was invited to a White House dinner by Ronald Reagan. Few of the guests appeared to know who he was. During dinner, Nancy Reagan turned to him and asked what he’d done with his life to merit an invitation. Straight-faced, Davis replied: “Well, I’ve changed the course of music five or six times. What have you done except fuck the president?”

Wayne Shorter – Bachianas Brasileiras

Shorter’s adaptation of “Bachianas Brasileiras No. 5” by Heitor Villa-Lobos, a marriage of classical and jazz idioms sounds unforced, even inevitable. Afro-Brazilian percussion sets up Shorter’s out-of-time, floating tenor sketches, which transition seamlessly to an instrument in the same tonal register, the cello of Charles Curtis, whose evocative sonorities linger on Villa-Lobos’ poignant theme. It seems unlikely that the arch formalities of Curtis’ cello could melt into the sound of Shorter’s horn, but it happens. Shorter spins corollaries of the melody before passing it back to Curtis, and then they play it together in pancultural counterpoint.
