Steve Kettley's Master Planners | Elchin Shirinov Trio

American saxophonist Pharoah Sanders - a disciple of Coltrane but a musical giant in his own right and one of the founding fathers of spiritual jazz. Who better to pay tribute to a much-missed legend than saxophonist Steve Kettley and his talented ensemble featuring Niki King (vocals), Phil Alexander (piano), Marion Kenny (flute), Stuart Allardyce (guitar), Andy Cooke (African xylophone & percussion), Jon Shaw (bass) and Des Travis (drums & percussion).

Kicking off the evening, pianist Elchin Shirinov leads a talented trio of Andrew Robb (double bass) and Stephen Henderson (drums). From acclaim in Azerbaijan to touring with Avishai Cohen Trio, Shirinov’s music interweaves modern arrangements of folk melodies with jazz improvisation, embracing exuberant and melodic imagination.
