Brighton, United Kingdom
Martin Speake (alto sax) Ethan Iverson (piano) Fred Thomas (bass) James Maddren (drums) * Absolutely unmissable gig marking Martin's 60th birthday, launching his new CD Intention (Ubuntu) and featuring Bad Plus pianist Ethan. Door/food 7.0 pm, music 8.30. Students £12 (see note below).

Citing Charlie Parker, Paul Motian, Lee Konitz, Keith Jarrett, Ornette Coleman and Rabih Abou Khalil amongst his influences, Martin has developed a personal voice with a deep understanding of Jazz and with improvisation that is intelligent, melodic, cool, complex, direct, beautiful and profound. Intention is a quartet recording which captures the breadth of his music in a selection of originals composed throughout his career. "One of the most interesting and rewarding alto saxophonists now playing jazz on any continent." - Jazz Times

Before his fame with The Bad Plus, Ethan Iverson was musical director for the Mark Morris Dance Group and a student of both Fred Hersch and Sophia Rosoff. He has worked with Billy Hart, Kurt Rosenwinkel, Ben Street, Lee Konitz, Albert "Tootie" Heath, Paul Motian, Charlie Haden and Ron Carter. He currently studies with John Bloomfield and serves at New England Conservatory.(Wikipedia) * "This ingenious pianist's fascination with the countless impromptu melodies that can hook chords together on the fly. It was a dazzling exposition by a uniquely idiosyncratic virtuoso-scholar of jazz (and a lot more modern music besides)." - John Fordham, The Guardian
