ALEX HITCHCOCK QUINTET

SATURDAY 12th MAY

 

 

 

 

Alex Hitchcock     tenor sax

James Copus       trumpet

Will Barry             piano

Joe Downard       bass

Jay Davis             drums

 

Alex Hitchcock, “a fantastic young talent” (Helen Mayhew, Jazz FM) leads some of the UK’s most distinctive new players. Alex combines the technical mastery now taken for granted with an enquiring mind as player/composer and a warm way with an audience.

 

James Copus’ beautiful brassy sound projects an original conception and the rhythm
team seems able to do it all. Will Barry has just been named Musicians’ Company Young Jazz Musician of the Year).
The music will range from classic jazz tunes to attractive originals and will be thrillingly played.

 

 

 

 

'If I suggest that it reminded me of Miles Davis’s classic quintet with Wayne Shorter that will give you some idea of the impact it had on me. It’s tightly disciplined, in the best sense of the word, with the front-line of Hitchcock and Copus playing as one, but with a sense of space that allows soloists to explore the themes in any direction they choose’

'...effectively mixed a traditional tenor-ballad warmth with a brisk contemporary attack'
