07 July 2017 - Firebird Quartet
Firebird Quartet is an ensemble teeming with talent, creativity and empathy. Little wonder then that JATPjazz' season was closed with a resounding jazz bang, audience in raptures and queuing up to purchase Firebird Quartet's recently released album Consonance which can be heard and purchased here
So if your "jazz bag" is original compositions and tweaked standards delivered with energy and driving groove of broad accessibility and with no little humour and wit, then Firebird Quartet are well worth looking up and taking in. As Lance Liddle (Splinter Jazz, Newcastle etc) put it, their's "was a stormer!” Our's was also.
