Christian Brewer Quartet Christian Brewer Quartet

Christian is one of the most lyrical and soulful alto sax players to have emerged from the UK in recent years. Loved for his melodic playing and pure tone, he has risen to prominence on the British jazz scene, and established himself as one of the most creative exponents of the post-bop style associated with the early sixties. The line up features Leon Greening on piano, Adam King on double bass and Matt Skelton on drums.

He has been described as a guitarist of phenomenal technique who is also fluent on the rarely heard glissentar, and his eclectic influences are drawn from jazz, latin, flamenco and Eastern music. He has toured with Jeff Beck's band and his album, entitled 'Infinity', features Jimmy Haslip on bass and drummer Vinnie Colaiuta. Tonight's gig is part of an extensive UK tour to promote his new album, "Peaceful", and features Richard Jones on violin, Kevin Glasgow on bass and Demi Garcia on percussion.
