Denys Baptiste (2nd show)


Denys Baptiste – tenor and soprano saxophones

Nikki Yeoh – piano and keyboards

Larry Bartley – bass

Rod Young – drums


British saxophonist and composer Denys Baptiste is one of the most celebrated and important jazz musicians in the UK. Since bursting onto the scene almost two decades ago he has powerfully demonstrated the boldness of his sound and the vitality of his vision.

The Late Trane, is a strong statement, reimagining the late period music of John Coltrane, that balances the master saxophonist’s unique artistic vision with the visceral emotions and cosmic references that encompass Coltrane’s later work: surely some of the most spiritually charged music of the 20th Century. The Late Trane is a reverent acknowledgment of this remarkable man and his music, who passed away 50 years ago this year, by an artist with his own voice and his own sense of destiny.
