James Sherlock & Ben Hanlon – Debut
Sun 12th April @ 8:30 pm - 10:30 pm$15 – $20
Guitarist James Sherlock and M.S.O. double bassist Ben Hanlon bonded over their shared passion for jazz and backgrounds in classical music. As such their performances combine improvisation, dynamic interplay and genre-straddling arrangements of jazz standards, classical repertoire, modern orchestral, chamber works and the occasional popular work. Their debut duo recording (released last year) is a collection of 10 compositions, combining interpretations of works by Massenet, Chopin and Schubert alongside jazz composers such as Jimmy Rowles and Sonny Rollins and songwriters Sting and Jack Lawrence.
They have also re-arranged works by Stravinsky, and will include part of Bach’s
St. Matthew’s Passion for this concert.
