Sun Nov 10:  Standard Deviation Quartet
Sunday 1-4pm (£7/5 conc)

Matt Anderson – tenor saxophone, Declan Forde – piano, Sam Vicary – double bass, Sam Gardner – drums

With their highly melodic, song-based approach, the Standard Deviation Quartet creates fresh re-interpretations of the standard jazz repertoire as defined by composers such as Cole Porter and Irving Berlin. They have appeared at many venues across the country as well as appearing live on BBC Radio Leeds – it will be good to see them at Inkwell New Shoots. “Matt blows tenor in a most deceptive way… a simple, almost elementary, chorus or two before gradually building and evolving into a kaleidoscopic cascade of notes and phrases that burst triumphantly then disappear from all but the ears of the listener.” Lance Liddle
