S4 at St Paul's Hall, Huddersfield 20 November 2019 Entrance is free — Visit now

Building on the legacy of free-jazz soprano player Sidney Bechet, S4 attempt to pry open the possibilities of the smallest, most underrated member of the saxophone family. With all four members playing soprano, they create an array of ambient textures and noisy caterwauling, calling on a range of extended techniques. Their improvisations reveal the secrets of their curious instrument, continuing the experimental groundwork laid down by players such as John Coltrane, Steve Lacy, Evan Parker and La Monte Young.
