Live Review: Sam Miles Quartet at The Verdict
Sam Miles Quartet
The Verdict, Brighton
Saturday 30th November, 2013
Young saxophonist Sam Miles grew up in Sussex listening to classic jazz and this permeates the sound that he gets from the tenor saxophone. Having studied at the Royal Academy of Music his playing continues to develop and grow.
His soprano saxophone tone resembles Bechet at times which is a refreshing sound to hear, particularly in a modern jazz setting.
Given how amazing he sounded this evening, it makes you wonder what more we have in store from him in the future.
Sam Miles, tenor and soprano saxophone; Matt Robinson, piano; Sandy Suchodolski, double bass; Ben Brown, drums.
