Andy Sugg is a leading Australian tenor and soprano saxophonist and band leader, he performs in a range of styles derived from jazz and other contemporary music. His music explores contemporary post-Trane improvisation in original compositions written for a small group setting.
While firmly grounded in its stylistic time and place,The Andy Sugg Group plays music that has left home.
It’s music in the moment, played by highly articulate musicians with something to say both as soloists and as members of a collective. The Group’s music embraces an eclectic range of compositional influences, which include contemporary jazz, funk, R&B and avantpop.
It’s Andy’s “blowing band”; a vehicle for extended improvisation in the best traditions of contemporary jazz. The Group’s current album, "Wednesdays at M’s", was recorded in New York City in 2016 with a stellar cast of expat and home-grown New York musicians, including Sean Wayland (piano), Nate Wood (drums) and Matt Clohesy (bass).
