Pinner Jazz, Middlesex

Saturday 22nd October 2016 20:00
Christian Brewer – Damon Brown Quintet

Two bandleaders have been at the forefront of British post-bop jazz since the 1980s and play regularly together in London’s best jazz clubs. Both have lived abroad and worked with the pick of the top US and UK jazz musicians. Their approach to jazz is inventive and exhilarating, but always faithful to the essential tenets of the music, with swing uppermost. Trumpeter Brown has a fine array of compositions to his credit and Brewer is a vital voice on alto. With pianist Jonathan Gee, with Adam King on bass, and Matt Skelton on drums.
