A melodic and intimate (acoustic and in-the-round rather than using the stage) gig by a fine trio to round off the Sheffield Jazz season nicely.
Satori is a Coltrane-inspired spiritual jazz trio led by saxophonist Josephine Davies. Their focus on melodic freedom and band interaction led to their debut album being released in 2017 to wide critical acclaim in the UK and Europe; “irrepressible tunefulness” (Downbeat); “consistently inventive” (Jazzwise); “spiritual, spiralling, slow-burning exuberance” (UK Vibe). This gig will feature material from a new CD due for release in Autumn 2018.
Josephine Davies: sax; Dave Whitford: bass; James Maddren: drums.
