Final Recital - University of York - May 2015

by Will Edwards

Saxophone/Synthesizer - Benjamin Turner

Keys - Tom McMahon-Hore

Bass - Adam Bonser

Drums - Will Edwards

This recital featured a collection of modern groove or rhythmically influenced jazz tunes. The set list arose from a particular interest in the drumming of Mark Guiliana, the player who features on the original Smash and 7 Ways recordings. His style is precise, punchy (when necessary), and clearly articulated, and has been influential on my playing. Sandwiched between these tracks are two beautiful compositions, 3rd Escapade and Kandaiki, that showcase some gentler influences.
