Gilad Atzmon, of The Blockheads, performs at Peterborough Jazz Club
International saxophonist and clarinetist, Gilad Atzmon, performs live with his quartet at Peterborough Jazz Club at The New Theatre in The Broadway, on Sunday (November 10), at 7.30pm.
As a member of The Blockheads, who performed ‘Hit Me With Your Rhythm Stick’, Gilad also recorded and performed with their front man Ian Dury, as well as with Robbie Williams, Sinead O’Connor and Paul McCartney.
In 2014, he recorded with Pink Floyd and is featured on their latest album The Endless River (Anisina).
Atzmon’s album, Exile, was the BBC jazz album of the year in 2003, and in 2013 his Metropolis album was voted top CD of the year by the Jazz Journal Critics’ Poll.
His ‘fiery, fluent playing and remarkable technique’ are said to have established him as one of the most talented saxophonists on the world stage.
He performs a mix of classic jazz standards and originals with an energy and enthusiasm that is dubbed ‘hugely infectious’.
Tickets for the performance cost £15 and are available from The New Theatre on 01733 852992 or from the website at: www.newtheatre-peterborough.com
