John Surman - Brewster's Rooster 2009

John Surman is an English jazz saxophone, bass clarinet and synthesizer player and composer of free jazz and modal jazz often using themes from folk music as a basis.


Over the last 40 years John Surman has been one of the foremost innovators when it comes to defining the saxophone's place in modern music. This restless approach that's given us solo works with synthesizers, entirely sax-based ensembles, pipe organ etc. means that when Brewster's Rooster - a work of what can only be defined as straight ahead jazz - hits the turntable, you know it's going to be special.
