Wolf Scarers Quartet – 13 December 2012

By Anton  //  Performances  //  No Comments

Wolf Scarers, formed in 2010 by Simon Prince and Keith Jafrate, are a sax duo who play improvisations that swerve from gentle meditations that almost become chamber music across to full-blown shout-ups in the true tenor sax tradition, via, possibly, messed-up marching band funk and deconstructed jazz strut.

“They really are in conversation and have a lot to tell….very focused….a rich and varied vocabulary at their disposal. Meditative meandering excursions are followed by heavy outbursts. Fine interplay and communication between these two! Nice work.” – Dolf Mulder, Vital Weekly

We are very happy to invite them back to the Noise Upstairs, especially as they have decided to add more saxophones to the mix! They will be joined by the wonderful Manchester-based baritone saxophonist, Ben Cottrell.Before and after their set, there will be the usual open improvisation jam session, all welcome to come and play. Just stick your name in the hat, bring instruments, laptops, voices, toys…

About The Noise Upstairs

The Noise Upstairs is an improv collective which runs a free-improv night in Manchester. The basic premise is that anyone can turn up and join in by putting their name in the hat. Names are pulled out, ensembles formed, and hearts broken.
