On August 4th ECM released Brewster’s Rooster a powerful, exciting, real "jazz" album, from the great British horn-player John Surman. Soulful ballads, hard-driving pieces and fiery improvisations show Surman at the top of his creative form on baritone and soprano saxophones, surrounded by an all-star cast featuring John Abercrombie, Drew Gress and Jack DeJohnette.. Surman - making a rare US appearance - will perform with this quartet later in the month. Not to be missed!
- August 27 – 29 in Washington DC, at Blues Alley
- September 1- 5 in New York at Birdland
