Fred Thomas' Polyphonic Jazz Band

  • Pumphouse, Snape Maltings Snape Maltings Snape, Suffolk IP17 1SP United Kingdom (map)

Fred Thomas’ Polyphonic Jazz Band explores improvised counterpoint in an uncompromising way through the medium of jazz standards. Eschewing the traditional chordal roles of harmonic instruments such as the piano and guitar, this ensemble instead seeks inspiration and transplants structural ideas from one of the richest resources in all of Western music history: Baroque Polyphony.  Featuring Martin Speake, Phil Stevenson, Phelan Burgoyne & Fred Thomas.
