The Derek Nash Acoustic Quartet
Derek Nash – Saxaphone
David Newton – Piano
Geoff Gasgoyne – Bass
Sebastiaan de Krom – Drums
This is a stellar line-up of class musicians which should whet the appetite of any jazz fan. We can expect smooth cool, groovy funk, ingeniously recast standards and gorgeous ballads. Even at its most restrained the music will fizz with energy. Geoff Gasgoyne and Sebastiaan de Krom were last at Southampton Jazz Club with Dave O’Higgins so we very much look forward to hearing them along side Derek Nash – “one of the most versatile saxophonists in the UK today” (The Guardian) – and David Newton who, in Matt Skelton’s words, is “one of our nation’s treasured pianists”.
