Gilad Atzmon, Alan Barnes & The Lowest Common Denominator
This will be a stimulating performance of humour and superb music by a hand-picked band of stars. Saxophonists Gilad Atzmon and Alan Barnes are at the very top of the tree and will be brilliantly backed by Gilad’s Orient House Ensemble Trio.
‘Atzmon’s fluid lyricism is in full flow on songbook classics and worldly originals. But as sweet romance morphs to modernist uncertainty, the bittersweet balance and rich emotional palette equally impress.’ Financial Times
‘Barnes, plays music that was radical 50 years ago – hard, urban post-bop – but he infuses it with so much passion and energy you could believe it was minted on the spot, which is always part of the story with jazz.’ John L. Walters, The Guardian
