John Surman, John Warren and The Brass Project
Cheltenham Jazz Festival – Town Hall Main Stage
To mark his 75th birthday, master saxophonist John Surman presents a rare live performance of The Brass Project co-led by the gifted composer John Warren. The music is distinguished by a sumptuous sound and deftly placed solos, inspired by the extraordinary 19th century journeying of Warren’s grandfather. The original rhythm team of bassist Chris Laurence and drummer John Marshall provide momentum for a 10-piece brass ensemble drawn from the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire’s jazz course.
