Details

Featuring Elliot Henshaw, drums, Tim Whitehead, sax, Simon Carter, piano and Dave Jones, bass, expect a dynamic evening of high energy Latin and funk inspired jazz with some of the very best jazz musicians in the UK, drawing upon the recordings, compositions and music of George Duke, The Yellowjackets, Herbie Hancock, Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder and Burt Bacharach to name a few. Elliot Henshaw is one of the UK’s finest and most prolific drummers whose versatility has seen him working with artists such as Shirley Bassey, Leo Sayer, The BBC Big Band, Syd Laurence Orchestra, Georgie Fame, Mathew Herbert, Mike Stern & Laurie Holloway. Saxophonist Tim Whitehead’s “Colour Beginnings” earned him a shortlisting for The British Composer Of The Year Awards in 2010 and Best Jazz Album 2011. “Tim Whitehead has a highly personal, always gorgeous sound on tenor and an infinite vocabulary – in a country of fine saxophonists he is one of the finest….” Peter Bacon, Jazz CD of the Week, Birmingham Post. Pianist Simon Carter is a graduate of the National Youth Jazz Orchestra and a musical director and keyboard player of international renown, touring and playing with a huge variety of artists such as Jamiroquai, Craig David, Leo Sayer and Nik Kershaw, including Anastasia, Atomic Kitten, Rick Astley, 10CC, Corinne Bailey Rae and Rooster as well as contemporary jazz artists such as Ronny Jordan and Marc Antoine. Dave Jones' bass playing in recent years has included Ronnie Scott’s Soul and Jazz Orchestra, Pete Cater Big Band, Way Out West Jazz Collective and Stefanous Tsourelis Trio as well as playing alongside alongside drummers Steve Gadd and Keith Carlock and leading his own groups such as Dave Jones’ Nonet.
