John Law’s Re-Creations
John Law presents his quartet project playing well known tunes from the world of jazz and pop, and occasionally also classical, featuring Parliamentary Jazz Award winner saxophonist Sam Crockatt.
Alongside reinvented classic jazz standards the quartet plays intriguing new arrangements of tunes by the Beatles, Sting, Radiohead, Adele, Paul Simon, Bon Iver and others. So you might hear a baroque version of Summertimenext to a drum’n’bass take on Satie’s Gymnopédie; a multi-layered, hypnotic arrangement of Over The Rainbowfollowed by a crazy rendition of the Beatles’ Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da. The concept is simple: some of the best known tunes in the world played really creatively, so audiences always feel part of the process and they know where they are, even when the band go really crazy!
As well as the melodic invention of Sam Crockatt, the quartet features the exciting talents of the new generation: stunning musician James Agg on bass alongside the rhythmic grooving of Italian drummer Paolo Adamo.
