John Law’s Re-Creations

John Law: Piano
Sam Crockatt: Saxophone
Henrick Jensen: Bass
Alex Goodyear: Drums

A classical piano child prodigy – he gave his first performance at the age of six – John Law won an open scholarship to study at the Royal Academy of Music. But despite being mentored by the great classical pianist Alfred Brendel, he decided at the age of 23 to switch to jazz. Since then, through appearances at concert halls and festivals all over the world, John has established himself as one of Europe’s leading jazz pianist/composers, often returning to explore his classical roots.

He started Re-Creations in 2016, as a counterfoil to his original compositions. It began as a fun project, playing lots of different tunes from different genres. But gradually the arrangements became more complex and interesting, while remaining accessible because the audience generally know the tunes.

The quartet’s repertoire includes jazz classics from the likes of Monk, Miles Davis and Gershwin and pop/rock tunes (Pink Floyd, Beatles, Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson, Radiohead). More recently classical pieces started appearing such as the Kyrie from Rossini’s Petite Messe Solennelle, Debussy’s Claire De Lune and Satie’s Gymnopédie. A true musical feast.
