The elegantly poised textures of Andy Sheppard’s new quartet – given a haunting, other-worldly presence by the electronic soundscapes of guitarist Eivind Aarset – mark a striking new direction for this most lyrically gifted of improvisers.
With music that ranges from original songs to a ‘translucently beautiful’ (The Guardian) extended meditation on a traditional Gaelic ballad, this is music that absorbs and enchants. The quartet’s new ECM album, Surrounded by Sea, is ‘a career-defining moment for Sheppard’. (★★★★ Jazzwise)
This tour features works from Surrounded by Sea, which was released in April, and this quartet sees Sheppard joined by
Eivind Aarset – guitar
Michel Benita – bass
Michele Rabbia – drums & percussion
