This quartet returns to the East Side Jazz .

Comprising four deeply creative and respected improvisers the quartet is a band of four friends who started having regular informal sessions over lockdown, becoming a rare creative high in grim times. Brought together by a shared love and joy for the art of improvisation and the jazz canon, the quartet freely improvise in and out of our own compositions, as well as interpreting tunes by Ornette Coleman, Don Cherry and Carla Bley amongst others

praise for Rick Simpson:

a brilliant mix of focussed energy and wild imagination. Jazzwise

praise for Riley Stone-Lonergan

Stone-Lonergan’s big, generous tone and unfailing response to the gravitational pull of melody invests even his most challenging explorations with an emotional directness that’s utterly compelling to experience. Jazzwise
