Sheffield Jazz present Still Waters, a project born out of a long association and friendship between Henry Lowther and bassist Dave Green.
Both felt that the time had arrived to play the music of their choice, together with some of the finest jazz musicians working in Britain today. As a result Still Waters is now one of the most accomplished, tightly ensembled and creative bands around. They play radical and original music, ranging from gentle, quietly pastoral and melodic music, through to dynamic, free improvisation.
This show is part of a tour celebrating Henry’s 75th birthday and there will be a pre-gig talk and Q&A by Henry starting at 7:30pm (doors opening at 7:15pm) about Miles Davis and his own career – including his Woodstock appearance, meeting Miles, and playing with rock bands including Manfred Mann and Keef Hartley.
