RM Quartet : Jazz from the Academy (RAM Night)
Tuesday 16th April 2019 - 8:00 pm
Music Charge: £10.00
8:00pm RM QUARTET Originally named “Skydive” after a Freddie Hubbard tune they played during their first performance, RM Quartet were brought together for the Chatham Jazz Festival as an All Star group and, in the tradition of such things, enjoyed themselves so much that they decided to do more gigs. The band features 606 Club owner and flautist Steve Rubie (Julian Joseph Big Band, Samara) and virtuoso trombonist Geoff Mason (Ronnie Scott's Big Band) alongside a rhythm section of Will Barry-piano, Joe Downard-bass and Winston Clifford-drums, all performed with the highly unusual, but extremely effective, frontline of trombone and flute. A world-class band performing classic contemporary compositions.
“Steve Rubie…in fine form.” Telegraph
