Pyramid Quartet are a Worcester based modern jazz band who promise a pharaohld time!
The Pyramid Quartet are a Modern Free Jazz Outfit whose music echoes the legacy of Pharaoh Sanders and Alice Coltrane.
Their music is characterized by a religious Eastern feel, which concentrates on swirling transcendental textures backed by a rhythm section that brings to mind the music of Ray Manzarek and John Densmore. The musical influences of the band include John Coltrane, Can and Lalo Schifrin.
The Pyramid Quartet have made a number of recordings at St. Anne's Well, situated on the Eastern slopes of the Malvern Hills. A place that has provided inspiration for the likes of Nigel Kennedy and Edward Elgar.
You can listen to all the latest music from across the two counties on the Friday Session, every week from 7pm on BBC Hereford & Worcester.
