With earthy melodies, lush harmony and emotive improvisation, the SAM NEWBOULD QUINTET led by acclaimed Amsterdam-based saxophonist, draws together some of the most exciting talents in European jazz. Sam’s writing is influenced by the compositional styles of Kenny Wheeler, Django Bates and Wayne Shorter and similarly a kaleidoscope of genres including jazz, English folk, 20th century classical music and progressive rock. The quintet’s most recent project, entitled ‘BLENCATHRA’, is a work inspired by life growing up in the Northern English countryside. Listeners are taken on a journey through the beautiful, mysterious, and sometimes wild corners of a landscape filled with secrets and memories. https://we.tl/t-LWgWTiG5gI https://www.samnewbould.com/sam-newbould-quintet https://www.facebook.com/samnewbouldmusic http://bit.ly/sam-newbould-youtube https://www.instagram.com/newboulds/ www.samnewbould.com
