Stephen Byth Quartet (New York/Melbourne)

Sun 14 January @ 7:30 pm

$20 – $30
Stephen Blyth, saxophone 2022

Following the completion of his Masters over in Boston over three years, tenor saxophonist and composer Stephen Byth has been based in New York during 2023. On his visit last year, he performed material from his acclaimed album, ‘Reparations’, with an ‘all-star’ octet, regarded by many as one of – if not the – outstanding gigs of the year.  (filmed by ‘Oh! Jazz’).

Since that debut album, he has released an EP-length project, ‘Welcome, Melancholia’, which is a heartfelt homage to three pillars of Black American Music, featuring compositions by John Coltrane, Duke Ellington and Wayne Shorter.

For this performance he performs in a quartet format with Brett Williams (piano), Sam Anning (bass) and Kyrie Anderson (drums).
