Doctor Gradus re-imagine the music of the French Impressionists in a heady mix of harmonic opulence, cascading lyricism, and rhythmic lunacy'. Featuring Pete Whinnett on Piano, Andy Philip on Guitar, Rob Levy on Bass and Dave Bryant on Drums. All 4 are veterans of the industry with over extensive West End musicals credits to their names.including Romeo And Juliet, Pirates Of Penzance, Beautiful And Damned, Saturday Night Fever, and Wicked. Born out of Pete and Andy’s curiosity with improvisation and a desire to bring something fresh to the scene, the quartet began to experiment laying down a new blend of rhythmic ideas and melodic musings based around the works of French composers. Thus the humble beginnings of Doctor Gradus were formed. 'The wealth of material out there to experiment with is endless,' says Pete, 'There are many great recordings by the likes of Gabriele Montero and Jacques Loussier with their classical/jazz crossover interpretations of Bach etc. Doctor Gradus are look forward to bringing the innovation of their vivid musical imagination to a wider audience.
