Award-winning pianist and composer Rick Simpson has been no stranger to the heart of the London Jazz scene for many years now, exploring both new and traditional music avenues. With Klammer, he has a group which gives full voice to his ambitious and exciting compositions. The music focuses on through-composition, complex ensemble playing and modern textures and rhythms, though with enough space for soloists to shine and plenty of wit and levity to boot. Rick is joined by George Crowley (tenor saxophone), Mike Chillingworth (alto/tenor saxophones and clarinets), Ralph Wyld (vibraphone), Rick Simpson (piano), Tom Farmer (double bass) and Dave Hamblett (drums).
