Zhenya Strigalev - Smiling Organizm
Thursday 16th May 2013
The young Russian alto saxophonist Zhenya Strigalev has lived and worked in Britain for eight years, and is a fascinating old-school/cutting-edge hybrid, with a formidable bebop-rooted sax technique, a burgeoning talent for composition, and an engaging willingness to take a chance. For this Smiling Organizm tour, Strigalev hired none other than Brad Mehldau's bassist Larry Grenadier and Charles Lloyd's dazzling drummer Eric Harland, with Britain's gifted Liam Noble on piano.
