The Keith Price Double Quartet made quite a splash this spring with its debut performance as part of Jazz Winnipeg’s Nu Sounds Series. Guitarist Keith Price composed a new score for the classic film The Good, The Bad and The Ugly, for an eight-piece band with two bass players and two keyboardists. The group’s sound is heavily funkified, with space for improvisation and spontaneity. Inspired by Miles Davis’ electric period (think Bitches Brew), Price’s new band features Neil Watson (saxophone and flute), Jeff Presslaff and Will Bonness (keyboards), Marty Thiessen (electric bass), Julian Bradford (upright bass), Scott Senior (percussion) and Jaime Carrasco (drums). For this performance the band will leave the film behind and be free to follow the muse wherever it may take them.
