Byron Wallen’s Four Corners – Sheffield Jazz
More than 10 years after his fourth album, ‘Meeting Ground’, for which he received nominations for Best Band and Best Album in the BBC Jazz Awards and Best Jazz Act in the MOBO Awards, Byron Wallen returns with his dazzling quartet Four Corners. The band, featuring Sheffield Jazz favourite Rob Luft on guitar, who were a great success on their last visit to Crookes on a snowy night in early 2019 were nominated for Jazz Ensemble of The Year in the 2020 Parliamentary Jazz Awards. For this gig they will feature music from Byron’s latest album ‘Portrait: Reflections on Belonging’ released last year to critical acclaim. “Danger UXB Wallen is back and he happens to be at the peak of his considerable, creative powers.” – Blues and Soul Music Magazine
