Mark Hendry fractus
After his amazing leadership debut at last year’s Festival, the double bassist returns with a new project featuring Irini Arabatzi (vocals), Bernadette Kellermann (violin), Matthew Carmichael (tenor saxophone), Greg Irons (drums). Hendry is probably the strongest jazz composer and arranger to have emerged in Scotland in recent years, and every new project must be regarded as an important milestone. How will fractus shape up? Jazz, with strong elements of folk, ambient and minimalism.
