Popular UK jazz pianist & composer Terry Disley returns once again to Yoshi’s with his much talked about Experience ensemble. This expanded all-star 8 piece version of the group will perform the most requested selections from “Experience,” Across the Pond,” “London Underground,” and “West Coast Jazz Impressions” plus an assortment of brand new material.
Disley has played with Eddie Henderson, Dee Dee Bridgewater, Candy Dulfer, Cecile Payne and Urbie Green, toured and recorded with Acoustic Alchemy, and played hundreds of sessions including Bryan Ferry, Van Morrison, Madness, Terry Hall (Specials), Billy Bragg, Sir Paul McCartney, George Harrison, Bryan Adams, Jon Bon Jovi, Mick Jagger, Tom Jones and Dave Stewart (Eurythmics).
“A composer with a gift for writing engaging tunes…a variety of buoyant moods and vibrantly shaded harmonies with a superlative cast.”
Andrew Gilbert - San Jose Mercury News.
“A canny songwriter and arranger whose grooving and accessible music draws on the melodic, wired-up sound of Miles Davis and Weather Report, the Crusaders' elegant funk, gospel, Bach, rock and a touch of techno-pop.”
Jesse Hamlin - The San Francisco Chronicle.
