22nd – Wandering Monster

Wandering Monster perform intricately arranged instrumental rock music which draws upon jazz sensibilities and sound worlds. Made up of five crossover musicians highly active on the northern scene, the group reach beyond what may be expected from the tried and tested line-up of the tenor saxophone/guitar quintet. Retaining the harmonic sophistication and improvisational approach of jazz, these influences are juxtaposed with the rhythmic complexity of modern rock and metal. The result is a sound that is intense and raucous, yet also dynamic, sensitive and spontaneous. An engaging live act, the band are able to pull off involved written material alongside moments of exciting, natural improvisation. Despite hailing from the musical melting pot of Leeds, the monster has been unleashed across the north of England at a number of jazz festivals after winning the 2016/17 Jazz North Introduces Award. Notable performances include support slots for Seamus Blake and Mammal Hands.

Sam Quintana- Double Bass/Compositions
Ben Powling- Tenor Saxophone
