The John Etheridge/Theo Travis Quartet
A veritable jazz-prog super-group featuring electric guitar, sax and flute, organ and drums, the John Etheridge/Theo Travis Quartet will bring us superbly talented musicians. For many years Etheridge and Travis have been the frontline of the legendary band Soft Machine, but each has played and recorded with an astonishing who’s who of international musical talent too numerous to mention but including Stephane Grappelli, Pat Metheny, Nigel Kennedy, John Williams, Dizzy Gillespie, Robert Fripp, David Gilmour, Gary Kemp, David Sylvian and Gong just for starters.
The rhythm section comprises one of the most go-to keyboard players in the British jazz and blues scene, Pete Whittaker and drummer Nic France, who has backed the likes of Annie Lennox, Bill Withers, Kate Bush, Ronnie Scott, Mose Allison and Julian Lloyd Webber to name just a few. Expect a pulsating night of musical fireworks and dreamy ambient soundscapes.
