Wildflower Sextet Album Launch & Tour
Saxophonist Matt Anderson has announced the dates for his upcoming Wildflower Sextet tour and album launch in February 2015.
The group, led by Matt, features an all-star line-up including Laura Jurd, Sam Vicary, Sam Gardner, Alex Munk and Jamil Sheriff and takes inspiration from the work of the great Wayne Shorter. Original works by Matt sit alongside arrangements of classic and lesser known works by Shorter himself.
The group recorded their debut album with support from Jazz Services, Arts Council England and Leeds College of Music and the tour in February celebrates the release of the album on Jellymould Jazz.
There are three Northern dates included on the tour - JATP in Bradford, The Lescar in Sheffield and Leeds College of Music (which will also be the Leeds album launch date).
