Andy Sheppard Quartet – Beyond the Dancing Sun + Kadri Voorand with Mihkel Mälgand
LONDON Kings Place (Hall One)
90 York Way
Further explorations through a sonic universe that ‘feels like a soundtrack to getting lost in the stars’ (Downbeat). Andy Sheppard’s graceful saxophones weave a path through the other-worldly guitar sounds of Eivind Aarset, and the skittering patterns of rhythm team of Michel Benita and Sebastian Rochford – ‘tip-toeing delicacy’ is how the Guardian described their 2015 recording Surrounded by Sea – its successor, Beyond the Dancing Sun is due for release on ECM in the early autumn.
