The gig is on March 17th at the Guildhall School of Music next to the Barbican Centre. Admission is free. It features Gwilym Simcock and Stan Sulzmann working with jazz students from Guildhall. The rhythm sections I’ve been hearing from Guildhall recently have been right on the button.
I could write a lot about the quality of Gwilym’s playing, but I won’t.
Chick Corea has said “Gwilym’s an original. A creative genius.”
And a very good early profile is HERE.
And John Fordham describes Stan Sulzman thus:
“UK saxophonist Stan Sulzmann could have lost his own musical personality in a three-decadecareer of showing he could play anything for anybody, at any tempo, with preparation you could write on a postage stamp. Instead, he found an authoritative voice late in the game, and became one of the British scene’s real interpretative individuals. “
Let me say it again, with feeling, and this time with a link, admission is free.
