This exciting collaboration between Sandy Evans and Brodie Jarvie was suggested by Roger Spence, the director of the Edinburgh Jazz and Blues Festival. Another wonderful example of the alchemy that festivals nurture – bringing musicians together who might not otherwise have met.
This two hour concert will feature music that Jarvie has created in response to the works of the Beat writer – and jazz lover – Jack Kerouac.
Sandy is looking forward immensely to playing with playing with some of the outstanding young musicians in the current Scottish scene and with a Scottish audience – ‘Scottish audiences are very informed about jazz and respond passionately and knowledgeably. ‘
It’s been around 15 years since Sandy last played in Scotland.
The Sandy Evans and Brodie Jarvie Quartet is:
Brodie Jarvie – bass
Sandy Evans – saxophones
Peter Johnstone – piano
Doug Hough – drums
