Johnny Hunter Quartet

The Johnny Hunter Quartet are a contemporary Jazz group who formed in 2010 to explores the possibilities and challenges afforded by the absence of a harmony instrument with compositions drawing on Johnny’s long-standing interest in the piano-less groups of Sonny Rollins and Joe Henderson, through to those of John Zorn and Chris Speed. Together with Mark Hanslip (Outhouse, Loop Collective), Graham South (Beats & Pieces Big Band) and Seth Bennett (IDST), their music currently exists within the freer, more exploratory side of Jazz, leaning more towards the approach of Ornette Coleman, Don Cherry and Henry Threadgill, whilst building on their previous explorations into Middle Eastern approaches to improvisation. They have performed at such esteemed venues as the Band on the Wall, Ronnie Scott’s, Kings Place, and at the London and Manchester Jazz Festivals, among many others. They have also appeared several times on BBC Radio 3. from
