Steve Waterman
Steve Waterman

Trumpeter par excellence Steve leads a group of his jazz peers for this brilliant gig
Steve Waterman trumpet, Anthony Kerr vibes, Alec Dankworth bass, Dave Barry drums

This quartet comprises top of the tree musicians, who have appeared at Fleece Jazz countless times, in various popular groups. They performed with Steve on his trio/quintet “Buddy Bolden Blew It!” recording, of which the Guardian’s John Fordham writes “the leader's repertoire of early-jazz growls and note-shakes are joined by impish resolutions in the manner of Wynton Marsalis”.

Steve is an established educator and composer. He runs several of his own bands, and is a sought after Trumpeter for groups of all sizes, including ones led by Alan Barns, Don Weller, Carla Bley and Michael Garrick

He brings with him a wonderful trio: Anthony Kerr is a vibraphone master, Alec Dankworth is among the great bassists, and Dave Barry is a hugely sought after percussionist.

AND COMING NEXT

Dave O'Higgins Quartet
Dave O'Higgins

Dave is rightly acknowledged as one of Britain's finest Contemporary jazz musicians
Dave O'Higgins soprano, Rob Barron piano, Geoff Gascoyne bass, Sebastiaan de Krom drums

Saxophonist Dave O’Higgins evokes an impassioned sound somewhere between Dexter Gordon and John Coltrane with an excellent sense of pacing and presentation. He feels his main apprenticeships were served with John Dankworth and Cleo Laine, Jim Mullen and Martin Taylor.

Dave brings a very classy trio. Rob Barron has a list of credits to die for. Geoff Gascoyne and Sebastiaan de Krom are firm Fleece Jazz favourites.

This quartet plays some of the most swinging music you will hear today - straight-ahead jazz firmly in the harmonic and melodic tradition, played by some of the finest UK-based jazz musicians. – The Observer
