John Surman

Reeds player John Surman has been key to the story of British jazz for 40 years and more. This solo performance, featuring music from his most recent album Saltash Bells, sums up why. Surman's musical pathways have taken him into free jazz and folk, South African township music and the blues - and many of those sounds are filtered into this set, in which he uses his trademark virtuosity, allied to an array of pedals and loops, to build rich soundworlds.
