Ben Bryden‘s Velvet Donkey

The New York based Scottish saxophonist has a new project – and an album launch tonight - bringing the music of the “Glasgow Dreamer”, Ivor Cutler into the contemporary jazz world. Wilfully idiosyncratic, sometimes whimsical melodies, are cherished and sculpted into wonderful creations by Bryden’s lyrical tenor sax and a high-octane Quartet featuring Reinier Baas, Mark Schilders (Netherlands) and Tom Berkmann (Berlin).
