John Law (“One of the UK’s most imaginative and versatile jazz pianists” International Piano Magazine,2014) presents Re-Creations: creative arrangements of some of the world’s most familiar music.The idea is simple: we take some of the best-known tunes from all genres – jazz, pop, indie, rock, folk, classical sometimes – and re-create them, finding new arrangements and new angles to present them. Sometimes just spontaneously re-inventing them. But no matter how free and inventive we get, no matter how complex and intricate the arrangements become, audiences everywhere always feel partof the creative process, because they know the tune and recognize it when it comes back. This is art music played, by highly skilled musicians, where audiences don’t feel excluded.They are an integral part of the evening and the whole experience. The current new repertoire includes tunes by the Beatles,a baroque arrangement of Fly Me To The Moon, a raucous version of U Can’t Touch This, an arhythmic take on Smoke on the Water, a gorgeous-working of Moon River, and a gentle swinging journey through Debussy’s Claire de Lune…Featuring UK Parliamentary Jazz Award Winner saxophonist Sam Crockatt, Danish bass player and composer Henrik Jensen and a new young firebrand on the UK jazz drumming scene: Alex Goodyear.
