John Law's 'Re-Creations' Quartet
‘Re-Creations’ started in 2016, as a counterfoil to John’s ‘Congregations’ group which played his original pieces and who we brought to Lincoln a couple of years ago. The aim this time is to play lots of tunes made famous by artists from different genres. The quartet’s repertoire includes, as well as jazz classics from Monk, Miles Davis and Gershwin, tunes from pop/rock/indie (Pink Floyd, The Beatles, The Jam, Stevie Wonder, Radiohead and more). There is even room for one or two classical pieces (Rossini, Satie). They are all given the John Law ‘treatment’ of a bold, imaginative, rhythmic and melodic twist whilst remaining rooted to the original tune.
John was originally a prize-winning classical prodigy before turning to pursue jazz and has now gained a reputation as one of Europe’s leading jazz pianists/composers.
Sam Crockatt was a recent Parliamentary Jazz award-winner.
‘...so full of joy that it can renew your faith not just in jazz, but music itself’.
