Fred Thomas’ Polyphonic Jazz Band
The Red Lion, West Midlands
Fred Thomas' Polyphonic Jazz Band explores improvised counterpoint in an
uncompromising way through the medium of jazz standards. Eschewing the traditional chordal roles of harmonic instruments such as the piano and guitar, this ensemble instead, seeks inspiration and transplants structural ideas from one of the richest resources in all Western music history: Baroque Polyphony.
