Martin Kershaw Octet: David Foster Wallace: In Memoriam
‘…as carefully structured and full of wit as the best prose writing...a compelling narrative…*****’ – Keith Bruce – Herald Scotland
A SPONTANEOUS standing ovation for a previously unheard jazz work would be worthy of note at any time. The alto saxophonist is one of Scotland’s finest jazz musicians, with interests across a range of styles. He’s also one of our foremost composers, and he follows up his “Hero As Riddle” triumph, with a new work inspired his passion for American novelist, David Foster Wallace.
It’s a major occasion and he’ll have a crack band: Sean Gibbs (trumpet) Adam Jackson (alto sax), Martin Kershaw (saxes), Chris Greive (trombone), Graeme Stephen (guitar), Paul Harrison (piano), Calum Gourlay (bass) and Doug Hough (drums).
