Saxophonist Matt Anderson has formed a new sextet featuring some great talent from the North, The Wild Flower Sextet. He explains that it
...celebrates one of the greatest musicians and composers of all time, Wayne Shorter, famous for his contribution across the whole spectrum of jazz, from Art Blakey’s Jazz Messengers, through the Miles Davis Second Great Quintet and Weather Report to his new Quartet. The dynamic new sextet aims to capture some of the essence of Shorter’s approach and sound in a celebration of his music as well as with new material.
As well as Anderson, the band features Mark Chandler, Alex Munk, Jami Sheriff, Sam Vicary and Dave Walsh.
Matt has sent us some videos from a recent recording session to check out -
