'An Evening With Gilad Atzmon'
An evening with Gilad Atzmon
Sunday 28 April 2019
Gilad Atzmon (Saxes/Clarinet), Jim Blomfield (Piano), Will Harris (Bass), Dave Smith (Drums)
If you have not witnessed Gilad Atzmon in action before then you have yet to witness a force of nature!
Atzmon is a multi-instrumentalist on saxophones, clarinet and ethnic woodwind instruments, as well as accordion and practically any other bit of kit he can get his hands on.
A larger than life character with a seemingly abundant store of energy, he not only tours constantly with his Orient House Ensemble band but has worked in many other projects including The Blockheads, Pink Floyd, Paul McCartney and Robert Wyatt. .
As a bandleader and reed player he has been amazing his listeners with his powerful personal style that combines great bebop artistry and Middle-Eastern roots in a sophisticated, sometimes ironical manner. Despite his muscular sax style he is a brilliant interpreter of ballads.
Influenced by John Coltrane’s approach on the sax, Gilad's live performances are simply breath-taking and overwhelming. His humour and stage personality loved equally by a huge fan base, all around the world.
Tonight, Gilad will be accompanied by the Bristol based Jim Blomfield Trio. Jim has been at the forefront of many impressive jazz projects locally and is a fine soloist and composer, evident on his recent second trio album release. His superb trio will act as a great foil for the exuberance of Atzmon powerhouse saxophone style.
‘Atzmon’s a larger than life figure with an almost overpowering musical personality... it's as perfect a jazz marriage as you could wish for.’ Phil Johnson (Independent on Sunday) *****
‘His talent shines among his peers.’ Julian Joseph (UK Jazz piano star & BBC Radio 2 presenter)
