Jerry Bergonzi Quartet

Jerry Bergonzi: Saxophone
Will Barry: Piano
Mark Hodgson: Bass
Stephen Keogh: Drums

He’s becoming a regular fixture! After two triumphant Jazz Hastings appearances in the last two years, the legendary American saxophonist Jerry Bergonzi is back once again by popular demand. Jerry Bergonzi gained worldwide recognition while playing with the legendary Dave Brubeck Quartet. Bergonzi’s complex, assertive tenor saxophone improvisations brought a more contemporary element into Brubeck’s established style.
Between 1973 and 1981, Bergonzi recorded nine albums with Brubeck. He has also performed and recorded with other major stars such as Bill Evans, Paul Desmond, Dave Holland, Gerry Mulligan, Jack DeJohnette, Roy Haynes and many more.

Bergonzi is renowned for his innovation, mastery and integrity. In an endless series of rave reviews, he is credited for his relentless drive, inner fire, total command, awesome technique, elastic lyricism, rich resonance and musical vision.

As with Dick Oatts earlier in the year, Bergonzi will be appearing with established UK jazz musicians Will Barry on piano, Mark Hodgson on bass and Stephen Keogh on drums.
