Andy Sheppard Quartet: Beyond the Dancing sun

Andy Sheppard – saxophones

Eivind Aarset – guitar and electronics

Michel Benita – double bass

Sebastian Rochford – drums

Saxophonist Andy Sheppard has been a constant presence on the British and international jazz circuit since he emerged as part of the late 1980s young UK jazz scene. Yet for all his widespread popularity, he’s remained hungry for exploring sonic pastures new

These explorations take the listener through a sonic universe that “feels like a soundtrack to getting lost in the stars” (Downbeat).  Sheppard’s graceful saxophones weave a path through the other-worldly guitar sounds of Eivind Aarset, and the skittering patterns of rhythm team Michel Benita and Sebastian Rochford. “Tip-toeing delicacy” is how the Guardian described their 2015 ECM recording Surrounded by Sea. Its successor, Beyond the Dancing Sun, is tipped to exceed all expectations.
