The Neil Maya Quartet

"Electrifying performance from a band that has everything - crisp melody lines and improvisation to match"

***NEW FOR 2017***

For many people, the sound of Dave Brubeck’s ‘Take 5’ is the sound of jazz. This popular American pianist and composer who died just a few years ago did more than perhaps anyone to bring jazz into the popular mainstream. Now Totnes based musician Neil Maya has put together a group of some of the finest musicians in the South West to authentically reproduce the best known Dave Brubeck recordings such as ‘It’s a Raggy Waltz’, ‘Blue Rondo a la Turk’, ‘Unsquare Dance’ and of course ‘Take 5’.

The band (which features pianist Matt Carter, Nick Carter on drums, Kevin Sanders on double Bass and Neil himself on saxophones) have recently performed numerous sell-out shows  including appearing at the 2016 Teignmouth Jazz Festival, as well as several shows for Devon's ‘Villages in Action’ scheme, and are currently putting the finishing touches to their new live CD/DVD set for release in early summer 2017.
