Urban Jazz Quintet 2016 - featuring Peter King
From the cream of the UK and European Jazz scenes comes one of the most exciting and creative bands around today.
The group sounds new and fresh, and is packed with creative talent.
"This very fine quintet was founded by Irish drummer Stephen Keogh and bassist Jeremy Brown. The arrangements make the three-horn front-line sound bigger than it is, and Brown and Keogh are a springy and dynamic straightahead rhythm section. The solos, meanwhile, are superb, and fully exploit the players' contrasting styles." John Fordham The Guardian
Three very original horn players, UK's living legend Peter King, Osian Roberts and Steve Fishwick make up a dynamic front line, locked in by one of the strongest rhythm partnerships in the game, Stephen Keogh and Jeremy Brown. Five outstanding musicians. Diverse and interesting original material including groove based tunes, hard driving swing and free form, to rich soulfull ballads. The band plays with great spirit of freedom and has developed its own unique sound. Expect group interaction on the highest level with plenty of flashes of individual brilliance.
Doors open 7pm, showtime 830pm
