One of the most in-demand musicians on the Scottish jazz scene, pianist Alan Benzie’s mixture of flowing lyricism, spontaneous creativity and explosive energy has earned him consistent praise from critics and audiences alike. Having performed in the UK, US, across Europe and Japan over the last few years with a staggering array of top musicians, Alan now brings his unique style to Aberdeen’s magnificent Cowdray Hall. With stunning acoustics and a stripped-back solo performance, this promises to be a glorious lunchtime of music.
‘Benzie’s playing has a hushed yet yearning quality to it; an exquisite touch and elegant virtuosity make for a thoroughly engaging listen.’ (Jazzwise)
