About Scottish National Jazz Orchestra: Where Rivers Meet
The Scottish National Jazz Orchestra presents its most ambitious, multi-dimensional event to date taking place online from May 12 to 15.
Where Rivers Meet celebrates the blues-driven, unfettered expression, spirit and excitement of jazz’s 1960s revolutionary “New Thing” through music and live visual art filmed in the architecturally striking setting of Edinburgh’s 12th century St Giles Cathedral.
Combining the visionary musical ideas of saxophonists Albert Ayler, Ornette Coleman, Dewey Redman and Anthony Braxton with the arranging talents of American pianist-composer Geoffrey Keezer, Tommy Smith, Paul Towndrow and Paul Harrison, the project features four outstanding saxophone soloists and the vividly expressive creations of Russian painter and multi-media artist Maria Rud.
Smith (tenor saxophone), Towndrow (alto), Konrad Wiszniewski (tenor) and Martin Kershaw (alto) take the solo spotlight on potent suites of Ayler, Coleman, Redman and Braxton’s music respectively as Rud responds with characteristically rich, soulful images.
Wed 12: Ornette Coleman featuring Paul Towndrow (alto saxophone)
Thu 13: Dewey Redman featuring Konrad Wiszniewski (tenor saxophone)
Fri 14: Anthony Braxton featuring Martin Kershaw (alto saxophone)
Sat 15: Albert Ayler featuring Tommy Smith (tenor saxophone)
