Heads South plays sizzling Latin Jazz Salsa combining Cuban and other Latin rhythms with tuneful melodies in a brilliant repertoire of original compositions and arrangements of classic tunes.

“Cool, cultured and exhilarating” The Musician

“A refreshing cultural mix of players with outstanding jazz credentials.. Cuban rhythms dominate, rocking syncopated percussion...well worth seeing” The Gig Guide

“Impeccable musicianship” The Times “Spare, crisp, invigorating Latin jazz…Waterman’s mastery of this idiom suits Harriman’s deceptively simple compositions to perfection' The Observer

'Very talented..dazzling solos....a Band that is well worth seeing' The Jazzmann.

The Band features top UK jazz trumpeter Steve Waterman, Cuban percussionist Chino Martell Morgan on congas, bongos, cajon, guiro, Buster Birch on drums, timbale, castanets, frame drum, Venezuelan bassist Adolfredo Pulido, and leader/composer John Harriman on piano and organ. Heads South has released two albums to critical acclaim and was chosen from more than 75 jazz bands nationwide as a winner of the UK Jazz Services/National Rural Touring Forum award for 2014/5. For newcomers to this music, think Buena Vista Social Club in a smaller package, add the excitement of Jazz, tuneful melody, and imbibe the warmth of a Latin evening, grooving into the night... premium Latin Jazz Salsa that thrills the keen music listener and the dance lover.
