The latest project from legendary saxophonist Steve Williamson, The Steve Williamson Experience provides a unique journey around music’s sonic potential to change our state and make us feel better. Through his lifelong study of harmonics, Steve creates music that soothes and heals as well as entertains, using primordial tones that speak directly to the essence of who we are, blending classical and jazz to create an entrancing, life-enhancing, soul advancing combination. Alongside his trio, Steve is joined by jazz string quartet StringTing to create a compelling musical experience.
StringTing is a flagship ensemble from Tomorrow’s Warriors, the celebrated hothouse for young jazz talent in the UK. Mentored by acclaimed bassist and artistic director, Gary Crosby OBE, StringTing are blazing a wide trail for women and strings in jazz, StringTing’s musicians are core players in the acclaimed Nu Civilisation Orchestra.
