Saxophonist Andy Sheppard has been a constant presence on the British, and international, jazz circuit since he emerged as part of the late 1980s young UK jazz scene. Yet for all his widespread popularity, he’s remained hungry for exploring sonic pastures new.

These explorations take the listener through a sonic universe that “feels like a soundtrack to getting lost in the stars” (Downbeat).   Sheppard’s graceful saxophones weave a path through the other-worldly guitar sounds of Eivind Aarset, and the skittering patterns of rhythm team Michel Benita and Sebastian Rochford. “Tip-toeing delicacy” is how the Guardian described their 2015 ECM recording Surrounded by Sea. Its successor, Beyond the Dancing Sun, is tipped to exceed all expectations.


This event is at the ROYAL HOTEL - next to Hull Bus & Rail Interchange. Tickets should be collected from Hull Truck Theatre before 6pm on Sat 11 Nov. The theatre is NOT open on Sun 12 Nov.
