BLUE IN GREEN #4

Alto saxophonist Sam Braysher received critical acclaim for his recent debut album Golden Earrings (Fresh Sound New Talent Records, 2017), a duo recording with the New York pianist Michael Kanan, and their accompanying UK launch tour.

 

His new trio project sees him presenting thoughtful takes on a diverse repertoire, ranging from Dexter Gordon to Gershwin incidental numbers to Disney. The group's sound is informed by the groovy ensemble concepts and arrangements of Ahmad Jamal, Thelonious Monk and Sonny Rollins.

 

Sam is joined by an exceptionally swinging London rhythm section: Dario Di Lecce (George Garzone, Sara Dowling) on double bass and Josh Morrison (Stacey Kent) on drums.

‘delightful and surprising’ Dave Gelly, The Observer

‘utterly swinging, with the restraint that comes from complete self-assurance, and hip as a New York minute’ Eddie Myer, Jazz Views

 

'Braysher's cool, modernist twist on old songs is just superb' Simon Adams, Jazz Journal (selecting Golden Earrings as one of Critics' Poll albums of the year 2017)
