Beats and Pieces for Sheffield

From Neil Pepper at Sheffield Jazz

Massive sound from a 14 piece big band this week at the Sheffield University Students Union Foundry with the acclaimed Beats & Pieces Big Band this Thurday 19 November

Ben Cottrell: director Anthony Brown, Cath Roberts, Jamie Stockbridge: saxophones
Owen Bryce, Graham South, Nick Walters: trumpets; Ed Horsey, Simon Lodge, Rich McVeigh: trombones Anton Hunter: guitar; Richard Jones: piano; Stewart Wilson: bass; Finlay Panter: drums

Gale-force energy plus startlingly original material - dozens of awards over six years, including 2014 Parliamentary Jazz Awards Ensemble of the Year. Influences from Ellington through Loose Tubes to Radiohead, vivid ideas and brilliant mood changes – they’ve redefined the big band for the 21st century. Back again after their brilliant sell-out gig in Sheffield last year, and fresh from this year at Ronnie Scott’s, Manchester Jazz Festival .....

“ …startlingly original material … that acknowledges big-band traditions while radically modernising them.” John Fordham, The Guardian
