His concert features works from his new album, "Surrounded by Sea" (ECM). Andy Sheppard soprano and tenor saxophones, Eivind Aarset guitar and electronics, Michel Benita double bass, Michele Rabbia drums.
‘Surrounded by Sea is…very, very good.’… Dalston Sound
‘Sheppard has never sounded better or more lyrical than on Surrounded by Sea….[it] is an intimate statement whose chemistry belies the quartet’s brief existence. There’s a bold honesty in the music’s refined contours and graceful adventure that invites and rewards the patient listener. There’s the feeling too, that this quartet has plenty more to offer.’… All About Jazz
