Jazz at Karamel: Chris Biscoe Quartet

July 5 @ 7:00 pm - 11:30 pm

Chris Biscoe (saxes), John Turville (piano), Steve Watts (bass), Stu Butterfield (drums)

Born in 1947, Chris Biscoe was drawn to jazz by hearing Fats Waller, Erroll Garner and Benny Goodman on the radio. Early listening to Lester Young and Stan Getz (Jazz Samba) and Charlie Parker led to him starting to learn alto sax in 1963. Chris is self-taught on sax and clarinet. Turning to tenor sax in 1965, Chris’s major influences were Sonny Rollins, Charlie Rouse and Dexter Gordon.
 
In 2015, Chris Biscoe and Allison Neale joined forces to bring to the fore the sense of collective improvisation on standard material so brilliantly demonstrated by Paul Desmond and Gerry Mulligan. Chris has brought his “Then and Now” band to Karamel on previous occasions.
 
On this evening, Chris will be playing music from the Billy Strayhdorn and Sonny Rollins Songbooks.
