New Focus

Tickets available at the venue box office.Stan Getz made one of the greatest jazz recordings of all time when he teamed up with composer, Eddie Sauter, to improvise with a rhythm section and strings on the album "Focus". Sauter's rhythmically and harmonically exciting masterpiece is sometimes overlooked, it's rare for concert promoters to get the special forces together. The great Scottish tenor saxophonist, Wiszniewski, and pianist, Euan Stevenson, launched their New Focus group by recreating the original music, and then presenting their own take on the Saxophone and Strings format. Especially for the Jazz 100 programme, they do it all over again. A very rare event!
