Narberth Jazz is holding a special presentation on Friday,February 24 at the Plas Hotel - Narberth, when a rather different version of the band Duski comes to Narberth to perform at The Plas Hotel.
Duski is a Cardiff-based band. The musicians are now touring a show based on their album Pillow Talk which consists of a series of spontaneous group improvisations which were recorded in a church in Cardiff last year.
Previously, the band - which is led by Aiden Thorne on acoustic and electric basses - has featured guitar as well as the saxophone of Greg Sturland. But for this tour, Greg is out front and weaving his magical music with just the bass and drums behind him.
This sax-and-rhythm format is similar to many of the Sonny Rollins albums made with Max Roach and Ron Carter in the 1950’s. Duski can perhaps be heard as a 21st century version of their sound, stripped back so that the subtle details can be enjoyed. Anyone who attended Tenby Jazz event with this band will tell you of the beauty and brilliance of Greg Sturland’s sax playing which will feature at Narberth Jazz this month.
The West Wales leg of Duski’s tour concludes at the Cwtch, Pembroke Dock on Saturday, February 25.
