Thursday 6th May - 8pm
Nicolas Meier (guitar/saz) Greg Heath (Sax) Patrick Bettison (bass) Asaf Sirkis (drums)
Nicolas Meier returns to the Bonington for another evening of tour-de-force guitar playing. Meier subtly blends jazz-rock with Flamenco, Latin and middle-eastern rhythms producing a deeply emotive 'world jazz'. Long-time collaborators Sirkis, and bassist Bettison add layers of textures to this exciting and inventive guitarist.
"Since John McLaughlin melted frets with the Mahavishnu Orchestra we have become used to frenetic guitar-led groups. None, however, quite mixes styles and sounds like that of Meier, a Swiss player as happy in flamenco and Arab melodies as he is in Western jazz."
