Salinas Song is the arresting second album from a quartet of young jazz titans, Draw By Four. Tonight they play the album in it’s entirety for the launch party at Kansas Smitty’s, showcasing the quartet’s formidable individual talents and while illustrating Jon Shenoy’s breadth of compositional technique and his eagerness to maintain a catchy, lyrical approach to the contemporary jazz aesthetic. Expect some groovy yuletide magic on the eve of Xmas week.

Jon Shenoy – tenor saxophone
Will Bartlett – Hammond B3 organ
Sam Dunn – guitar
Dave Ingamells – drums

With a line-up steeped in tradition, Draw By Four take the classic 60s organ quartet into brand new territory where the compositions from 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.

Salinas Song is the fresh follow-up album to the monumental debut Framework (Jellymould Jazz, 2018) recorded hot on the heels of a UK tour of the same name which took the band to over 30 UK venues, culminating in an unforgettable performance at Cork Jazz Festival.

“Dynamic and evocative adventures from soulful and skillful players – a refreshing and groovy band.” – Chris Cheek (Rudder)
“Shenoy plays with great assurance, power and fluency.” – Ian Mann (thejazzmann.com)
“Shenoy displays a melodic sensibility that bears comparision with any of the great saxophone balladeers of yore.” – Bebop Spoken Here

Doors 7pm, music from 8:30pm
