Sam takes you on a tour of real and fictional people he has met and places he has been. Get ready to be transported to the inspiring dramatic cliff top landscape of ‘Treyarnon Bay’ in Cornwall, and take a waltz with the happy-go-lucky protagonist of a Mary Ann Shaffer novel in ‘Juliet’s Dance’. Join him on an intriguing night out with the ‘Cockermouth Girls’, and nurse your hangover with an afternoon of lower league football at the ‘Weston Homes Community Stadium’!
‘People and Places’ is a flexible ensemble which morphs from classical quartet to improvising jazz trio and jazz sextet with consummate ease. Chorales contrast with free improvisations, latin grooves contrast with driving swing and brooding ballads.
As a musician known for his exceptional facility, versatility, eclectic tastes and humour,Sam will lead you thorough an engaging and entertaining concert of original music and improvisation.
