Jon Lloyd Group

Jon Lloyd / John Law / Rob Palmer / Tom Farmer / Dave Hamblett

Catch the group in London as part of their UK tour

“A saxophone delivery as persuasive as a speaking voice. Lloyd should be seen and heard more often.” Penguin Guide to Jazz on CD

“The album sees Lloyd moving away from the free-improv roots for which he’s perhaps best known into more harmonically inclined territory, with superb results..This is definitely a group to catch if you can.” **** Selwyn Harris, Jazzwise

Jon Lloyd – soprano saxophone, bass clarinet, composition. Jon
has played on the UK jazz and improvised music scene for over
20 years, playing with the likes of Paul Rogers, Mark Sanders,
Marcio Mattos, Paul Clarvis, Stan Adler, Michel Pilz and Gerry
Hemingway.

“Ambitious and virtuosic…Jon Lloyd is one of the most striking
writers at the sharp end of British jazz and improvisation” John
Fordham, The Guardian

Pianist John Law has been a key member of Jon’s groups since
the Jon Lloyd Quartet’s Syzygy back in 1991. He is a musician with
a rare sensitivity and a fearless ability which cuts across all genres;
his own musical path has connected freedom, classical music and
jazz , reaching a high in recent years with his Congregation Trio
with Asaf Sirkis and Yuri Goloubev.

Guitarist Rob Palmer plays with a powerful soloing style coupled
with a high regard for texture and ambient sound. He plays with
saxophonist Theo Travis, vibes player Roger Beaujolais and
French composer Daniel Biro.

Bassist Tom Farmer is part of the new generation of highly
accomplished UK jazz musicians – a bandleader with the
phenomenal Empirical and a bass player of enormous strength.

Drummer Dave Hamblett is one of the UK scene’s most indemand
young drummers. Performing in the UK and Europe with
Ivo Neame, Phronesis, Kenny Wheeler, Jean Toussaint.
