Shrimpkiller saxist digs deep
Ed Jones (tenor sax) Ross Stanley (keys) Riaan Vosloo (bass) Tim Giles (drums). Door/food 7.0 pm, music 8.30. Students £12 (see note below).

Based in London for over 25 years, Ed's quartet was the first band to play at the old Jazz Cafe on Newington Green and he became a regular performer on the emerging 'Acid Jazz' scene at The Wag and Dingwalls. With Damon Brown he co-led Killer Shrimp, which in 2007 won the Parliamentary Best Jazz Ensemble Award, their album 'Sincerely Whatever' nominated best jazz CD. Over the past decade he has performed with George Benson, Dianne Reeves, Charles Earland, Horace Silver, Clifford Jarvis and Dr Lonnie Smith. * "A formidable saxophonist... he's an improviser to his fingertips, a player of forceful imagination, and one of the UK's most distinctive." - The Guardian * "His vigorous, sometimes downright volcanic tenor sound has long been one of the great live delights of British Jazz." - Jazzwise.
