Add to Calendar 2017-11-10 20:00 2017-11-10 Andy Sheppard Quartet at Turner Sims International jazz star and ECM recording artist, Andy Sheppard is one of few British musicians to have made a significant impact on the international jazz scene, playing and writing for solo to big band and chamber orchestra. Returning to Turner Sims tonight with his quartet, he presents music from his new album Beyond the Dancing Sun. Their 2015 ECM recording Surrounded by Sea was described by The Guardian as tip-toeing delicacy. Now, with Sheppard’s graceful saxophones weaving a path through other-worldly guitar sounds and skittering rhythms, this is an exploration through a sonic universe that feels like a soundtrack to getting lost in the stars (Downbeat).
