Jon Shenoy’s Draw By Four
With a line-up steeped in tradition, Draw By Four take the classic 60s organ quartet into brand new territory where the compositions from saxophonist leader Jon Shenoy (Ivo Neame Large Ensemble) mix contrapuntal bass lines and rhythmic hooks with thoughtful lyricism. Mixing stark ethereal voices with gritty Hammond boogaloo, organist Will Bartlett [Jim Mullen, Salena Jones] draws on a wide palette of sounds that build the foundation for an infectious mix of groove-based original compositions, enchanting ballads and unique arrangements of avant-pop songs. Guitarist Sam Dunn is based in Leeds, and recent work has seen him tour Australia with Grammy Nominated jazz pianist and vocalist Judy Carmichael, and perform at Ronnie Scott's, Wimbledon Music Festival and the Legnano Jazz Festival in Milan, Italy. Drummer Chris Draper has recently toured with Clare Teal and Kyle Eastwood, and has also performed with Jason Rebello and Soweto Kinch. The band appear at the club as part of a 20 date Arts Council funded national tour to promote their forthcoming CD Framework. Jon Shenoy - sax, Sam Dunn - guitar, Will Bartlett - Hammond organ and Chris Draper - drums.
