Kairos 4tet are a British jazz band, spearheading a new breed of ensembles that bridge the gap between the classic and the contemporary; the jazz idiom and the popular dominion; burning improvisations and songs to linger long after the music stops.

The band's leader saxophonist and composer Adam Waldmann has performed with a wide range of leading figures from the world of R&B and ... Read more in Amazon's Kairos 4tet Store

Product Description

Product Description

Kairos is an ancient Greek word meaning the right or opportune moment (the supreme moment). Kairos 4tet was born out of a desire to explore times past, present and future, creating music with a sense of space, between the competing worlds of written melody and in-the-moment improvisation. The band play the distinctive compositions of saxophonist Adam Waldmann, who has been described as "a young master in the making" by Time Out and a "precociously talented composer and player" by AllAboutJazz. Despite comparisons to some of his musical idols including Wayne Shorter, Charles Lloyd and former teacher Julian Arguelles, Waldmann's unique voice and approach on his instrument make him one of the most distinctive saxophonists in the UK.

5.0 out of 5 stars What the critics said 3 May 2011
Format:Audio CD
THE MERCURY PRIZE "The set goes deeper than its widely praised successor 'Kairos Moment', with greater space given to individual solos and the band... sounding ever more dynamic in their musical dialogue."

* * * * MOJO MAGAZINE "...this superb group are terrific players inspired by thoughtful compositions. Waldmann's themes have a strength and clarity, underlined by his own calm, understated delivery"

* * * *JAZZWISE MAGAZINE "A formidable yet flexible unit, Kairos 4tet make free flowing contemporary music that packs melody, rhythm and high flying improv into a tightly wound whole. Hence you're as likely to leave whistling one of their many refreshing tunes as you are to be impressed by the group's compelling interplay and imaginative solo skills."

METRO "Waldmann's troupe have resisted the zeitgeist to make music that is resolutely acoustic and unapologetically lyrical....Waldmann has a melodic gift as a writer and considerable grace as an improviser"

AllAboutJazz"....full of energy, inventiveness and melody, demonstrating a maturing musical sensibility, and placing the band fairly and squarely in the top flight of the UK jazz scene....Statement Of Intent is exceptional."

* * * * THE IRISH TIMES "...a superb group whose increased solo strength continues to be reinforced by intensely focused interplay... remains fresh and, for all its contemporary feel, accessible."

* * * * MANCHESTER EVENING NEWS "Adam Waldman is one of the most distinctive saxophonists in the UK...The Kairos Statement impresses with its sure sense of artistic purpose"

* * * * Time Out "Statement of Intent melds lush classical-ish harmonies with adrenalised improv, shimmering beats and purposeful grooves to bewitching effect...

5.0 out of 5 stars Kairos -the UK's Best 2 Sep 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is one of the best British bands of any genre and they deserve all the credit for their original compositions

Adam Waldman,the sax leader and main writer is composing on a level higher than anyone in the UK right now,Kit Downes excepted.

These are finely honed pieces played with both love and zest and I highly recommend this work to any true jazz lover or indeed lover of fine music,be it classical,jazz or rock
