ANDY DAVIES QUARTET feat. ANDY DAVIES trumpet; TONY KOFI tenor sax; NATHAN BRITTON piano DAISY GEORGE bass JAS KAYSER drums
Trumpeter extraordinaire and purveyor of witty asides, Andy Davies adores the music from the hard bop and soul jazz era of the 50s and 60s particularly by the trumpet-led bands that recorded primarily for the premier New York based jazz record labels of Blue Note and Prestige. Andy passionately conveys the spirit of some of the top horn players, from the funky lyricism of Lee Morgan (The Sidewinder) through the soulful graininess of Kenny Dorham (Afro-Cuban) to the solid tone of Freddie Hubbard (Hub-Tones) with some mid-period Miles Davis (Workin’, Cookin’, Relaxin’ and Steamin’) thrown in for good measure!
Andy Davies is an award winning British trumpeter, writer and comedian leading his own quartet, currently resident band for over 10 years at Ronnie's Scott's famous Wednesday night jam session.
He is a key member of the Soho.Live collective as a recording artist, host and performer. His new album “Rise Of The Spidermonkey” is an explosion of catchy originals & reworked jazz classics displaying his savage bebop skills and world-class trumpet mastery.
