'Henry Spencer's music had a unique focus and quality rarely experienced from others of his generation... Originals with real meaning' - Paul Pace, Ronnie Scott's Jazz Club, Soho, London

ABOUT THE MUSIC:
Drawing on influences from jazz, rock and minimalism, the ensemble creates an achingly contemporary sound world with a focus on emotional and creative expression. Having met whilst studying at the Guildhall School of Music, the band are able to draw upon years of playing together, resulting in a deep musical understanding and interaction between the musicians. This musical empathy, along with Henry’s fresh compositional approach led them to winning the Best Newcomer award at the Marlborough Jazz Festival following their debut performance in 2011.

Completing the group's line up is:
Henry Spencer - trumpet, flugelhorn and compositions (Winner of Emerging Excellence Award, Winner of Best Newcomer Award at Marlborough Jazz Festival)
Nick Costley-White - guitar (Winner Yamaha Jazz Scholarship for Outstanding Musicians) Andrew Robb - bass (Winner of BBC Radio Scotland Jazz Musician of the Year 2009)
David Ingamells - drums (Yamaha Jazz Outstanding Musicians Scholar 2013, Winner of Chartered Surveyors' Prize 2013)
Matt Robinson - Piano (BBC Radio 3, Yamaha New Jazz Sessions)
