  • Quentin Collins trumpet/flugelhorn

This ensemble, with its all-star line-up, highlights Quentin Collins’ formidable, soulful original compositions alongside his uncanny ability to interpret lesser played classic material from the jazz canon. This band never fails to surprise and delight with their approach harking back to the classic jazz of the 1950s and 1960s epitomised by the output of the Blue Note label, but with its roots in bebop, Basie and Ellington. From straight ahead swing and bebop to Brazilian samba and jazz fusion, there’s always something new in the mix. The result is unfussy but melodic, delivered with grace, but infused with zip and bristling with bustling energy.
