William Hooker
Symphonie Excerpts

Legendary composer and drummer brings his quartet to play excerpts from his new record, Symphonie of Flowers.
The artists in this quartet are Marc Edwards,Matt Chilton and Theodore Woodward.

“William Hooker is an artistic whole, a vast circle of vision and execution. A body of uninterrupted work beginning in the mid-seventies defines him as one of the most important composers and players in jazz. As bandleader, Hooker has fielded ensembles in an incredibly diverse array of configurations. Each collaboration has brought a serious investigation of his compositional agenda and the science of the modern drum kit. As a player, Hooker has long been known for the persuasive power of his relationship with his instrument. His work is frequently grounded in a narrative context. Whether set against a silent film or anchored by a poetic theme, Hooker brings dramatic tension and human warmth to avant-garde jazz. His ability to find fertile ground for moving music in a variety of settings that obliterate genre distinctions offers a much-needed statement of social optimism in the arts.”

Thomas Stanley.

*This performance is a part of the New Ears Music & Arts Festival.
