John Law Quartet
John Law (“One of the UK’s most imaginative and versatile jazz pianists” International Piano Magazine, 2014) presents Re-Creations: creative arrangements of some of the world’s most familiar music.
The idea is simple: we take some of the best-known tunes from all genres – jazz, pop, indie, rock, folk, classical sometimes – and re-create them, finding new arrangements and new angles to present them.
Sometimes just spontaneously re-inventing them. But no matter how free and inventive we get, no matter how complex and intricate the arrangements become, audiences everywhere always feel part of the creative process, because they know the tune and recognise it when it comes back. This is art music played, by highly skilled musicians, where audiences don’t feel excluded. They are an integral part of the evening and the whole experience.
