The Standard Deviation Quartet - led by saxophonist Matt Anderson, a former Jazz Yorkshire Young Jazz Musician of the Year - is a group committed primarily to playing standard songs.
With their highly melodic, song-based approach, they create fresh re-interpretations of the standard repertoire as defined by composers such as Cole Porter and Irving Berlin. The quartet initially formed as part of Leeds-based guitarist Jiannis Pavlidis’ group, and after discovering a great chemistry together quickly sought to establish themselves as a band in their own right.
