Mark Hendry 05 Apr 2018
Music from bassist, Mark Hendry’s latest album “Esperance” can be heard at EJBF18 as well as an EXPO commission for a 20-piece big band – also part of the New Wave Of Scottish Jazz series.
Mark Hendry’s Octet “Esperance” is an astonishing album of contemporary compositions, in which the 20 year old shows a scarcely believable maturity across a stylistic range that draws on jazz, rock, and classical influences. Big, sweeping musical statements; edgy, gripping tunes; wonderful melodies; and constant surprise. This is the opening statement by a master musician.
He plays at The Old Hairdressers, Renfield Ln, Glasgow G2 5AR on 12th April
