John Law Tour Dates
John Law, a prize-winning classical prodigy on piano, is one of Europe’s finest jazz pianist/composers, having played at many festivals worldwide and recorded over forty albums, working with musicians as diverse as Gwilym Simcock, Andy Sheppard, Jason Rebello, Tim Garland, Iain Ballamy and Evan Parker. John’s main projects currently are his acclaimed contemporary jazz and electronics quartet Congregation featuring Mercury Prize nominee James Mainwaring, Re-Creations – a quartet featuring Parliamentary Jazz Award winner Sam Crockatt, playing new arrangements of jazz and pop tunes - and two classical crossover projects: Goldberg, his recreation, with added visuals, of Bach’s original work and, with pianist David Gordon, Sacre, presenting Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring, alongside jazz interpretations of some of the movements.
