John Surman - New CD and Performances in the USA

SOURCE: Published: 2009-08-13




On August 4th ECM released Brewster's Rooster a powerful, exciting, real “jazz" album, from the great British horn-player John Surman. Soulful ballads, hard-driving pieces and fiery improvisations show Surman at the top of his creative form on baritone and soprano saxophones, surrounded by an all-star cast featuring John Abercrombie, Drew Gress and Jack DeJohnette.

Surman, making a rare US appearance, will perform with this quartet later in the month.

Mark these dates!

  • August 27 - 29 in Washington DC, at Blues Alley
  • September 1- 5 in New York at Birdland
