Matt anderson quartet
London-based saxophonist and Dankworth Prize-winning composer Matt Anderson presents his quartet touring their new, critically-acclaimed release 'Rambling' on Jellymould Jazz. Since its launch in June 2018 at the hotbed of the creative London jazz scene, the Vortex Jazz Club, the album has won praise from the likes of Jazzwise, BBC Radio 3 and Jazz FM for its “outstanding,” melodic writing and “uniformly excellent playing”, all fronted by Anderson’s warm tenor sound. The band brings together seemingly distinct musical influences, for example exploring the common ground between the folk music reminiscent of Matt's rural upbringing in the North Yorkshire Moors, the bluesy, country strains of Bill Frisell and Scandinavian jazz, culminating in a lyrical and personal Afro-Celtic sound world.
