THE quirkily-named quartet Compassionate Dictatorship takes over the Queen's Theatre next Wednesday. The talented four will present original music influenced by a wide span of styles, ranging from the worlds of folk to free and contemporary jazz.
The result of a collaboration between Jezz Franks and Tori Freestone, this guitar and sax-led ensemble has been described by Jazzwise Magazine as, "catching the current wave of Brit Jazz".
They're now promoting their third album, Entertaining Tyrants released on the Jellymould Jazz label.
Compassionate Dictatorship are in the Gallery Café at the Queen's Theatre, Barnstaple on Wednesday, January 30, 8pm.
Tickets: £11 (adult), £5 (student or young person). Box office: 01271 324242 or visit: www.northdevontheatres.org. uk
