Fri 31 August 8pm, The Spirit of Trane
“It feels as if The Spirit of Trane, an emotional tribute to a master, comes closest to connecting the turbulent Gilad Atzmon’s heart and mind. ****” (John Fordham, Guardian)
Sat 1 September, 8pm Thinking Bird
On this second night, we can hear Gilad Atzmon play the music of the be-bop saxophone god, Charlie Parker. His uncanny ability to understand, replicate and build on the heritage of the two most influential saxophonists makes both nights a ‘must see’.
