Brandon Allen blew audiences away when he last appeared at the Bonington with his tribute to Gene Ammons. He returns with the new BATL (Brandon Allen/Tim Lapthorn) quartet who have a new CD out. He and Tim have been performing together for over 16 years. Brand new material has been written by the two players, channelling their respective influences and passion for melody and swing, inspired by players such as Stan Getz, Wayne Shorter, Chick Corea and John Coltrane.
Line-up: Brandon Allen (tenor) Tim Lapthorn (piano) Tim Thornton (replacing Arnie Somogyi) (bass) Lloyd Haines (drums)
"Brandon Allen is arguably the most exciting tenor player in Britain today. His phrasing is unashamedly emotional, soaked in the blues tradition." - Tony Hall, Jazzwise
