To celebrate the 2014 cultural exchange between Tbilisi and Bristol, ECM recording artist and international jazz star Andy Sheppard has assembled this special quartet consisting of Bristol-based musicians. Andy has written new music for this quartet which will be heard outside the UK for the first time. Guitarist Denny Ilett is also the artistic director of Bristol International Jazz & Blues festival and, as such, invited the Beka Gochiashvili trio to Bristol in March 2014. Denny has been a professional, in-demand musician for nearly 30 years. Will Harris is a young bassist from Bristol who performs with his own groups around the UK. Dylan Howe is one of the UK’s most respected jazz drummers and performs and records regularly with his own groups.
