26-27 Cookridge St, LS2 3AG Leeds
Johnny Hunter (Sloth Racket, Spirit Farm, Nat Birchall) formed his quartet in 2010 to explores the possibilities and challenges afforded by the absence of a harmony instrument with compositions drawing on Johnny's long-standing interest in the piano-less groups of Sonny Rollins and Joe Henderson, through to John Zorn and Chris Speed. Together with Mark Hanslip (Outhouse, Loop Collective), Graham South (Beats & Pieces Big Band) and Seth Bennett (IDST), their music currently exists within the freer, more exploratory side of Jazz, leaning more towards the approach of Ornette Coleman, Don Cherry and Henry Threadgill, whilst building on their previous explorations into Middle Eastern approaches to improvisation.
T...hey have performed at such esteemed venues as the Band on the Wall, Ronnie Scott's, Kings Place, and at the London and Manchester Jazz Festivals, among many others. They have also appeared several times on BBC Radio 3.
“Admirably reflects the independent creativity of the new Manchester scene.” – John Fordham, The Guardian
“Connects authentically with jazz tradition, whilst developing its own voice through original composition – a fabulous advertisement for British jazz.” – London Jazz News
“Hard-grooving Jazz that’s filtered through the investigation of more unfamiliar dance metres.” – Selwyn Harris, Jazzwise
