about

The Anton Delecca Quartet reach magnificent heights here, with their 3rd album, The Healer.

This win-win line up of Anton Delecca (tenor saxophone), Luke Howard (piano), Jonathan Zion (acoustic bass) and Daniel Farrugia (drums), make music in The Healer that is compelling and absorbing.

Band leader and tenor saxophonist Anton Delecca (also of The Bamboos) grew up listening to a diverse range of music, including Ravi Shankar and Louis Armstrong from his father's record collection, Led Zeppelin and 70s pop from his brother's collection and the classical cello and piano practice of his sister; all contributing to the sonic texture of his music today.

This is an album to listen to in its entirety; as each piece sweeps you away, whether it’s the Middle Eastern ambience of the opening track The Ark, the exuberance of the Cole Porter classic Love for Sale, or the sublime beauty of The Healer, the journey will inspire you!
