Dreams Are Free

Bobby Wellins

Dreams are Free is a celebration of a talented musician, composer and great storyteller.  It charts the rise, fall and redemption of critically acclaimed saxophonist Bobby Wellins. He played with the cream of jazz musicians, including Ronnie Scott, Stann Tracey and Charlie Watts, and received critical acclaim for his intense and haunting performances on the seminal track ‘Starless and Bible Black’.  Yet Wellins struggled to overcome addiction and depression.  Ten years of silence followed, before he began to rediscover the desire to play, and self-belief in his ability.  Shown with kind permission of Gary Barber for one night only.

Euan Stevenson

In this solo performance of New Focus: The Classical Connection, specially devised for Glasgow Jazz Festival in these times of social distancing, the award-winning pianist-composer Euan Stevenson shares his insights into the relationships between the classical and jazz traditions and illustrates the classical influence on his own composing.

Stevenson and his New Focus partner, saxophonist Konrad Wiszniewski, have performed The Classical Connection to considerable acclaim in concert and won a five-star review from The Herald when the duo presented it at Edinburgh Jazz & Blues Festival in 2019.

The music here includes an Ellington-Erik Satie “mash-up” and to further illustrate Satie’s considerable influence on the jazz world, Stevenson delivers his hero, Bill Evans’ sublime, Satie-esque Blue in Green from the Miles Davis classic album Kind of Blue and his own Meditation, which is based on Satie’s Gymnopédie Number 3.

Look out, too, for a baroque-era setting of All the Things You Are, a jazz ballad treatment of Liszt’s Liebstraum and Stevenson’s swinging take on the Stuff Smith favourite You Look Good to Me, a long-time staple of another of Stevenson’s heroes, Oscar Peterson’s trio.
