John Pope Quintet

About

One of the many pleasures of jazz promotion is to see young musicians grow in confidence and creativity, and to present them in concerts that reflect that growth.

Jazz North East could hardly find a better example than bass player John Pope who, in the decade or so since they first encountered him, has increasingly impressed in performances with artists across the spectrum of modern music, from folk songsters to free improv legends to genuine pop stars. But jazz is his creative home turf, and this gig sees him in full flight.

Leading an all-star band of Northern musicians, John's music draws on the history of 60s avant-jazz and hard-bop, but with a modern sensibility grounded in the adventurous sounds of today's European jazz scene. A mix of original tunes and carefully-curated cover material, played with hard-swinging ferocity and playful openness, referencing everybody from Ornette Coleman to Tom Waits, Mingus to the Pixies. The John Pope Quintet kicks up a joyful racket full of rewards for the adventurous listener.
