Thursday 11 July - 4PM
the jazz wizards with the mark lockheart quartet
Join us for a special concert as part of the Frome Festival featuring four of the UK’s most exciting and versatile musicians.
Led by British jazz hero Mark Lockheart these incredible Jazz Wizards will take you on a magical sonic ride through swirling sounds, twisted melodies and head-nodding grooves!
Mark Lockheart (Kenny Wheeler) – saxes
Dave Smith (Robert Plant) – drums
Tom Herbert (Polar Bear) – bass
Elliot Galvin (Dinosaur) – keys
“Saxophonist Mark Lockheart, a key contributor to the laconic lyricism of Polar Bear, has been quietly evolving into one of the UK jazz scene’s outstanding composers.”
“As a member of two of the most seminal British “jazz” bands of recent times in Loose Tubes and Polar Bear saxophonist Mark Lockheart is assured of his place in musical history. When you also consider his role as a member of the eclectic and consistently engaging Perfect Houseplants plus several excellent recordings under his own name it becomes clear that Lockheart is very much an under-appreciated talent in his own country.”
