Matt Anderson’s Wild Flower Sextet

Critically-acclaimed, London-based band the Wild Flower Sextet will be heading North from the 29th to 31st January for a short tour encompassing Durham, Cumbria and Leeds. Led by saxophonist Matt Anderson, who was until recently based in Leeds but is now studying for an MA at the Royal Academy of Music in London, the band released their debut album this year on the Jellymould Jazz label to widespread critical acclaim and airplay on BBC Radio 3 alongside a 13-date national tour and launch gig at Pizza Express Dean Street, with Selwyn Harris of Jazzwise writing “Their own unique stamp on Shorter’s very personal repertoire… of a quality that resonates with its inspirational source… Enjoyably un-pretentious.”
