September 16th

JOHN LAW’s ‘Re-Creations’ featuring SAM CROAKATT

John Law (piano), Sam Croakatt (saxophone), James Agg (bass), Billy Weir (drums)

The Hive, Belmont, Shrewsbury, 8pm, £15 Under 22’s £7. Tickets from The Hive 01743 234970 or www.hiveonline.org.uk; Pengwern Books 01743 232236

John Law, “one of the UK’s most mature and versatile jazz pianists”, is known for playing in many musical contexts, including electronica.  But this band is acoustic, playing accessible melodic music arranged by Law from the jazz, pop and indie repertoire.  “A formidable thematic improviser”, Law draws on his stunning pianistic skills, encyclopaedic knowledge and wide-open mind to create musical surprises.  The now well-established Sam Crockatt is a brilliant contemporary player, full of feeling and with a nod to tradition, as he showed  at The Hive a few years ago.  Bassist James Agg and drummer Billy Weir can negotiate rhythmic complexity as easily as laying down the deepest groove.
