Description

Johnty Wilks: Deep Deep Sax

Johnty Wilks takes you on a journey of ambient, improvised melodic jazz to beautiful backdrop projections. Johnty's soft mellow sax tone, combined with electronics and K Darling on U-bass/programming, bring influences of relaxing nordic jazz, the warmth of Brazil, jazz noir soundscapes and Ibiza chillout to their concerts.

Line-up: Johnty Wilks on Alto & Soprano saxes, Synths/Piano/Electronics with K Darling on fretless & U-bass, electronics, plus special guest.

Johnty Wilks is a saxophonist, composer and producer of his special brand of relaxing music and spiritual jazz. Influenced by ECM artists, the modal jazz of Miles Davis, the hypnotic chants of Don Cherry’s trumpet, he brings a refreshing approach to the newer boundaries of jazz.

8.15pm (doors)
Concert: 8.30-10.30pm
Tickets: £19 in advance / £22 on the door (plus fee)

“His sound is cool, instantly captivating and reminiscent of Jan Garbarek and the late Paul Desmond. Eyes tightly closed, he improvises freely; richly melodic phrases flow endlessly from his imagination." The Jazzman Blog

"Johnty holds his audience spellbound, a tour-de-force performance of free flowing improvisation.” Alternative Reading

"His music is beautiful" - Lucinda Drayton from Bliss
