Blending strong melodies and Latin grooves with distinct folk and classical influences, fine saxophonist and creative composer Pete Canter presents his “dreamy and joyful” original music for saxophone, flute, strings and rhythm section. After captivating listeners at last year’s Teignmouth Jazz Festival the quintet incarnation of the band has gone on to release their superb new album “Strange Bird”. Now expanded to a septet with the addition of flute and violin, the ensemble brings well-crafted arrangements to life with exciting improvisation, soaring backing lines and anthemic melodies.
Line-up: Pete Canter – soprano & tenor saxophone, Marius Rudnick – flute & alto flute, Lucy Welsman – violoncello, Iona Padel Collins – violin, Matt Johns – piano, Jim Rintoul – double bass, Gary Evans – drums
