JOHN LAW'S 'RE-CREATIONS' 

featuring SAM CROCKATT

 

SATURDAY 16TH SEPTEMBER

 

 

 

 

John Law          piano

Sam Crockatt    sax

James Agg        bass

Billy Weir           drums

 

  

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.
