Alex Bonney Quartet

Alex Bonney – trumpet
Robin Fincker – sax
Johnny Brierley – bass
Jeff Williams – drums

The Alex Bonney quartet perform original compositions with a range of influences from Don Cherry to Messiaen as well as exploring the passionate music of Albert Ayler.

"Both Bonney, with his sparing but telling use of vibrato and vocalised tones, and Fincker, whose controlled fervour seems more impressive with each successive Vortex appearance, set a sensible course between the Scylla of outright re-creation of the Ayler brothers' sound and the Charybdis of using their material merely as a springboard for frolics of their own; An unexpected treat."
Chris Parker - The Vortex
