Andy Davies Quintet

The quintet will be performing some of Andy’s fiery bebop originals such as ‘Boppy’ along with an explosive approach to playing music from the world of hard bop.

Joining him in his quintet are the BBC award winning saxophonist Tony Kofi, pianist Rick Simpson, Downbeat Magazine 'bassist of the year nominee' Daniel Casimir and in-demand drummer Saleem Raman.

Andy Davies is an award-winning Welsh trumpeter, comedian, script writer, voice over artist, actor and educator.  He has hosted the famous Wednesday night Ronnie Scott's Upstairs Jam Session for over thirteen years.  As a sideman, Andy has performed and recorded internationally with jazz artists such as Ian Shaw, Ronnie Scott’s All Stars, Guy Barker Big Band, Tony Kofi Quintet and Nigel Kennedy, to name a few.

He has released several albums with the Andy Davies Quartet, most recently the critically acclaimed ‘Rise of The Spidermonkey’.  His Quartet has toured internationally including a tour of Japan, culminating in a sold out performance at the Tokyo Opera House.

One of the most sensitive and creative trumpeters to emerge on the British Jazz scene in recent years.
