BIOGRAPHY

With a line-up steeped in tradition, Draw By Four take the classic 60s organ quartet into brand new territory where the compositions from leader Jon Shenoy (Ivo Neame Large Ensemble) mix contrapuntal bass lines and rhythmic hooks with thoughtful lyricism. Mixing stark ethereal voices with gritty Hammond boogaloo, organist Will Bartlett (Jim Mullen, Salena Jones) draws on a wide palette of sounds that build the foundation for an infectious mix of groove-based original compositions, enchanting ballads and unique arrangements of avant-pop songs.
Due for release in March 2018 on Jellymould Jazz records, Framework is the 10-track debut album from Draw By Four, recorded hot on the heels of their UK tour of the same name. As well as showcasing formidable performances from the quartet members it also includes a suite of compositions written in response to paintings by three British painters: Winifred Knights, JMW Turner & Gill Holloway.
“Dynamic and evocative adventures from soulful and skillful players – a refreshing and groovy band.” – Chris Cheek (Rudder)
“Shenoy plays with great assurance, power and fluency.” – Ian Mann (thejazzmann.com)
“Shenoy displays a melodic sensibility that bears comparision with any of the great saxophone balladeers of yore.” – Bebop Spoken Here
