Jazz As Art

Big Bad Wolf
Quiet Coach


When you listen to music, you sometimes conjure images in your mind. Our Jazz As Art series invites you to listen to a piece of jazz and as it plays, scroll down the page and see which of the pieces of art I have chosen comes closest to the pictures in your mind. Hopefully, this will introduce you to recordings and art works you might not have spent time with before.

Quiet Coach comes from Big Bad Wolf's debut album Pond Life released in July 2017. The players are: Owen Dawson (trombone); Rob Luft (guitar); Michael De Souza (Fender bass VI) and Jay Davis (drums).

Big Bad Wolf describe their music as 'featuring washy guitars, ambient vocals, brassy hooks and deep grooves…'. Graduates of the jazz courses at the Royal Academy of Music and Leeds College of Music, you will hear them playing with other groupings, but in Big Bad Wolf they have developed their own style with an unusual combination of instruments that really works.

Click 'play ►' on the track below and there are then seven pictures I have chosen to go with the music. Which works best for you? (the player goes on playing other tracks on the album when Quiet Coach ends).
