Time Is Of The Essence – The Ollie Weston Quartet
Ticket Link: https://www.wegottickets.com/event/582914
Time Is Of The Essence is one of those bands that seems to have got the balance just right between edifying and entertaining its audience! The Observer, in reviewing a gig wrote that “there was never a dull moment throughout this highly engaging programme”!
Featuring the outstanding saxophonist Ollie Weston, the band performs original pieces (“finely honed, instantly appealing and right up there with any contemporary jazz writing…” ~ The Guardian) and fiesty fare by the likes of Steely Dan, John Scofield and Stevie Wonder.
The band’s collective CVs include recordings and performances with, among others, Mike Oldfield, Shirley Bassey, Nigel Kennedy, Barbara Thompson, Tom Jones, Bobby Wellins, Amy Winehouse, Sax Appeal, Tim Minchin, Anita Wardell, Paul McCandles, John Etheridge…
