At just 26 years old saxophonist Victor Jimenez is a massive young talent who is shaping the next generation of Jazz musicians. His brilliance combined with a natural inquisitiveness has allowed him to share the stage many greats like Bob Mintzer, Jerry Bergonzi and Mark Turner. Steve Fishwick is of the best jazz trumpet players ever to have emerged from the UK, and is rapidly gaining a global reputation thanks to his flawless technique and beautifully flowing, harmonically rich improvisations. Legendary Jazz critic Ira Gitler says 'My question is where has Fishwick been hiding? When Steve lights his wick he becomes a flying fish, soaring above the waves, totally in control!'
The concert will comprise original compositions by both co-leaders along with some classic standards from both the great American song book and the the great Latin American song book.
