MEETINGS WITH REMARKABLE SAXOPHONISTS

LONDON: Vortex

TUE 2ND SEP, 2014 8.00pm

Following the critical acclaim for Prévost’s bold series of recorded concerts in 2011, join us for a unique monthly series of concerts, revisiting the recordings and discovering how the music has evolved.

September 2nd
Jason Yarde alto and soprano saxophone, Oli Hayhurst double bass, Eddie Prévost drums

“Yarde’s lines coalesce into driving post-Ornettte neo-bop before visiting various other parts of the jazz and improv realm. Yarde negotiates changes of mood, tempo, attack
and texture with considerable panache, coherence and architectural integrity.”
— Jazz Journal

“The real discovery is Jason Yarde...and says enough about the esteem Prévost has for
the young musician. The quality is obvious. He can shout and scream full of relentless
energy, exploring new sonic environments and alternating with very lyrical and calm
passages, with phrases and rhythms that are real jazzy, and as part of a trio that moves as
one. Hayhurst is good and quite jazzy too, quoting Charlie Haden in one of his solo moments ... and Prévost? ... well he is Prévost ... all creative all present all in function of the music. The album consists of two lengthy improvisations, one of twenty-six minutes,
the other almost twice as long, but which is captivating from beginning to end. A real treat.” Freejazz
