Edition Records are proud to announce that formidable jazz ensemble Neon Quartet will be releasing a second album with us later this year.
Neon Quartet comprises of musicians from four distinct trajectories within jazz: frontman saxophonist Stan Sulzmann’s biography reads like a ‘Who’s Who?’ of jazz – Kenny Wheeler, John Taylor, Gordon Beck and US pianist Marc Copeland have all been long-term associates. His forty years in the business have seen him work with Gil Evans, Mike Gibbs, the New York Composers’ Orchestra, Michael Brecker and the NDR Big Band. As well as being a wonderfully lyrical saxophonist, Stan is a much-respected composer and he combines this experience to expertly lead Neon Quartet.
REACTION FROM ‘CATCH ME’:
“The Quartet’s use of counterpoint, its rhythmic flexibility, imaginative interplay and lyrical and inventive soloing combine improvisation with a scrupulous attention to detail without compromising the organic development of each performance”. IRISH TIMES *****
“A delightful surprise….purposefully hip and vibrant…Hart’s conversations with Downes sound like some of the most seductive piano-vibes dialogues this side of John Lewis’s and Milt Jackson’s in the legendary Modern Jazz Quartet”. GUARDIAN ****
