VIDEO: Matt Anderson's October Ending
LCoM graduate and favourite of the Northern jazz scene Matt Anderson has released some new footage of his quartet playing a new composition, October Ending.
This new video of my group the Matt Anderson Quartet finds us playing an original composition of mine entitled ‘October Ending.’ It’s the first in a series of four videos I’m calling the ‘St. Mark’s Series’ which I’ll be releasing weekly over the coming month, and is filmed ‘live in the studio’ at the St. Mark’s Church, Marylebone, where we did a session with the Royal Academy of Music recording team. The quartet features myself on tenor saxophone, Ashley Henry on piano, Will Harris on double-bass and Jay Davis on drums, and this is a relatively new project which we started last winter while three of us (myself, Ashley and Will) were studying on the MA course at the Academy. Jay is also an alumnus of the same course.
Audiences in the North are sure to recognise both Jay Davis and Ashley Henry as they too studied at Leeds College of Musix before moving to London to continue their studies at the RAM.
