Saltburn Jazz Night with The Ben Crosland Quartet
Date & Time:
5 November 2021 7:30 pm
The Ben Crossland Quartet
The Quartet features Rod Mason (saxophones), Dean Stockdale (piano) and Dave Tyas (drums), all leading figures on the northern jazz scene. Each member of the band is a leader in his own right and this relaxed joining of kindred spirits produces an open, mature and energetic performance in which there are no conflicting egos, only a desire to enjoy each other’s company, play good music and entertain.
The band will feature material by contemporary composers including Jaco Pastorius, Mike Mainieri and Don Grolnick as well as originals penned by Crosland, together with the occasional standard freshly realised.
‘Excellent northern bassist/bandleader’
‘Fluid and inventive contemporary bassist’
‘His compositions are colourful, beguiling and thoroughly musical’
