Alex Merritt

Alex Merritt

This band has forged a unique sound and approach to its music which draws on a diverse range of influences from the contemporary classical music of Bela Bartok, to the jazz of John Coltrane.

Tonight's performance is part of their national tour to support their debut CD: Anatta.

The concept of 'Anatta' which is drawn from Buddhism is the inspiration for the music of this album.

The album has had very strong critical acclaim:

"A promising jazz debut of striking quality." — John Fordham, The Guardian ***

"It's one of the best UK jazz recordings I've heard this year" — Stephen Graham, Marlbank News ****

"Merritt is not only an artist to watch, but also to listen to, as one would a dawn chorus: with eyes closed and mind opened" — Tyran Grillo, All About Jazz ****

"Merritt's rich but dry tone traces a line back to the Cool School jazzers such as Warne Marsh" — Robert Shore, Jazzwise ****

"Merritt's warm, dry, Getzian fluency is a joy, whether intertwining with Turville's mysterious, unpredictable chordal shifts or bubbling with controlled fervour... This feels like just the beginning and what a beginning" — Adrian Pallant
