hot young band's Verdict debut
 
Jon Shenoy’s Draw by Four

Jon Shenoy (tenor sax) 
Will Bartlett (organ) 
Kristian Borring (guitar)
 
Dave Hamblett (drums)


With a line-up steeped in tradition, Draw by Four take the classic 1960s organ quartet into brand new territory where the compositions from leader Jon Shenoy combine contrapuntal bass lines and rhythmic hooks with thoughtful lyricism. Mixing stark ethereal voices with gritty Hammond boogaloo, organist Will Bartlett (Salena Jones) draws on a wide palette of sounds that build the foundation for an infectious mix of groove-based originals, enchanting ballads and unique avant-pop arrangements. The quartet also features Danish guitar hero Kristian Borring (Urban Novel, Jellymould Jazz) and drum virtuoso Dave Hamblett (Ivo Neame).  "Jon Shenoy is without doubt a hidden gem. A unique multi-instrumentalist, he plays with sophistication, soul and eloquence." - Claire Martin

SAM LEAK TRIO

 

Sam Leak (piano)  Misha Mullov-Abbado (bass) David Storey (drums)

Sam (29) is a London-based Jazz pianist described by JazzFM's Helen Mayhew as "One of the brightest stars in the Jazz piano galaxy, a heavenly improviser, and a brilliant prospect for the future." He is highly involved in a number of different Jazz scenes throughout the UK and is most widely known for his band Aquarium, for which he is both pianist and composer. The Guardian's John Fordham described their CD Places as "surefooted creativity... way beyond respectful expertise." Sam is a regular at the Ronnie Scott's Late Sessions, so expect the very best in contemporary jazz.
