Brighton Festival 2018 Bitesize - Profile of John Surman

May 10, 2018, 09:42 AM

British saxophonist John Surman last year scooped the Ivor Novello Jazz Award in recognition of his huge contribution to jazz over the last five decades. Part of a richly talented generation to emerge during the 1960s, Surman is revered internationally for his pioneering approach to composition, including the use of electronics, brass ensembles, choirs, string quartets and orchestras. 

He performs at St Georges Church on Thursday 10th May as part of the  Festival. RadioReverb's Mark Johnson takes a look at the musician.
