In order to relive the magic of Denys' monumental 'Let Freedom Ring' project and his album 'Be
where you are,' which won two of the UK music industry's most prestigious awards in 1999—the
Mercury Music Prize Award for 'Album Of The Year' and the MOBO Award for 'Best Jazz Act'—these
renowned band leaders will renew their collaboration in 2023 and reunite once again for a limited
number of live shows.
The show will also feature respected London Jazz musicians Joe Downward on bass and Rod Youngs
on drums and will include music from Andrew's most recent ‘5 star’ trio album, "Terra Firma”.
Andrew McCormack has toured, recorded and collaborated with an impressive array of
internationally established musicians, including Randy Brecker, Quincy Jones, Jamie Cullum, Jean
Toussaint, Jason Yarde and most recently Kyle Eastwood, which has seen him contribute to the
scores and orchestrations of several Clint Eastwood films.
Denys has developed over the years into what Time Magazine refers to as "the icon of British jazz,"
with a sound that is incredibly distinctive and instantly recognizable. Denys is a highly sought-after
soloist who has collaborated with some of the biggest names in jazz, including Jason Rebello,
Incognito, and Jazz Jamaica.
Two celebrated UK bandleaders – one amazing quartet.
