Malay Tone Poem

‘Dynamic and evocative adventures from soulful and skillful players – a refreshing and groovy band’ – Chris Cheek (leading US alto player - ex Charlie Haden and Paul Motian)

‘Shenoy plays with great assurance, power and fluency.’

– Ian Mann (

The club welcomes a great band to the club for the first time. With a line-up steeped in tradition, Jon Shenoy's Draw By Four takes the classic 60s organ quartet into brand new territory where the compositions from leader Jon Shenoy (Ivo  Neame Large Ensemble) mix contrapuntal bass lines and rhythmic hooks with thoughtful lyricism. Mixing ethereal voices with gritty Hammond boogaloo, organist Will Bartlett (Jim Mullen, Salena Jones) draws on a wide palette of sounds that build the foundation for an infectious mix of groove-based original compositions, enchanting ballads and unique arrangements of avant-pop songs.

Their date at the Spin marks the end of a national tour in which the band play a suite of compositions written in response to paintings by three British painters: Winifred Knights, JMW Turner & Gill Holloway. 

A great evening of music from some of the leading new players on the British scene.
