“A Trumpeter whose style is a sizzling update of the Morgan/Hubbard approach”
For well over a decade now, Quentin Collins has had an enviable reputation as a lyrical and melodic trumpet player with a powerful sound and approach. His first album released in 2007 "If Not Now, Then When?" received critical acclaim with Jazzwise calling it an "intensely impressive debut", while the Guardian called Quentin a "young brass virtuoso". He has continued to forge an impressive reputation on the UK scene via projects including the “QC/BA Quartet” (alongside another 606 Club regular Brandon Allen), with the band touring internationally and releasing the brilliant album 'What's It Gonna Be?' He also includes the likes of Jeff Beck, Jason Rebello, Basement Jaxx, Omar, Prince and Roy Ayres on a lengthy and impressive cv, but these days is probably best known for his work with the internationally acclaimed Kyle Eastwood Band. Tonight Quentin will be bringing to the Club his wonderful "Electric Band" which features an A list rhythm section of Andrew McCormack-piano, Laurence Cottle-bass, Jamie Murray-drums as well as Quentin's special guest, New York City-based saxophonist Brandon Wright (Nile Rodgers, Bruce Springsteen, Mingus Big Band).
