New Moves, New Grooves
When the buzz surrounding British jazz began to fade, musicians headed in new directions. In the third of four programmes, John Fordham charts their diverse paths. Saxophonist Andy Sheppard has written music for television, theatre and contemporary dance, and Django Bates and his band collaborated with a circus. While some players have experimented with the rhythms of rap, others have revisited their roots: saxophonist Tommy Smith has found inspiration in Scottish poetry; Christine Tobin investigated traditional melodies from her native
Ireland; and Gary Crosby formed Jazz Jamaica, a band mixing improvised solos with a strong ska beat.
