“Denys Baptiste…taking Europe by storm and becoming the icon of British jazz”
A leading light on the London jazz circuit Denys Baptiste’s impressive talent, built on a foundation of a powerful technique and an ability to improvise effortlessly across a wide range of musical styles, is only matched by his creative energy and musical endeavour. A multiple award winner, including the "Mercury Music Album of the Year" and "MOBO Award for Best Jazz Act" his CV is littered with collaborations with high profile artists including Marvin “Smitty” Smith, Courtney Pine, Julian Joseph & Manu Dibango.
Tonight his remarkable quartet-put together specifically for this show-will feature the upcoming Award-winning pianist Sultan Stevenson (Parliamentary Jazz Award 2023 “Newcomer of the Year”) with bassist Larry Bartley (Courtney Pine, Stanley Turrentine) and drummer Joel Barford (Dave Douglas, Nigel Price) completing the lineup. Do not miss this unique performance.
Tuesday 22nd August: Unfortunately Gary Crosby isn't able to play with the band this Thursday. Larry Bartley, who performs regularly with Denys, will now be on bass.
