Producing a sound that’s intense and raucous, yet sensitive and intellectual, Wandering Monster reaches beyond what may be expected from the tried and tested line-up of the tenor saxophone/guitar quintet. The band is led by double bassist Sam Quintana and performs original compositions influenced by his love of jazz, rock and world music. The group hail from the vibrant city of Leeds, home to a thriving jazz scene that has produced the likes of Roller Trio, Trio VD, Matthew Bourne and Submotion Orchestra. Audiences can expect a dynamic, spontaneous and energetic live performance synonymous with the city’s roster of innovative artists. Having emerged from Leeds onto the national jazz scene, Wandering Monster is part of the exciting wave of young artists operating in the UK today. ​ 'This may be their debut album, but there’s a maturity and generosity in each other’s musical company that makes Wandering Monster just a little special-‘ Andy Robson- Jazzwise ‘Really rather brilliant-‘ Roger Thomas- BBC Music Magazine
