Ed Jones: Soprano/Tenor Saxophones, Sam Leak on piano, Jon Scott on drums and Oli Hayhurst on bass.

Award winning Saxophonist/Composer Ed Jones returns to the quartet format with which he first made his name on the UK jazz scene over 25 years ago. Formed in 2011 and Initially inspired by the music of Wayne Shorter this quartet has branched out to feature original new compositions.

Their album For Your Ears Only recorded in the summer of 2016 is being released on Impossible Ark Records and Ed will be embarking on a 20 date UK Tour with the Quartet. Come and hear them at The Crypt.

"Ed Jones may now be considered a stalwart of the UK & International jazz scene. Signed orignally by Gilles Peterson on Acid Jazz and after many years in Incognito he has always ploughed his own furrow leading different small groups. This quartet with Impossible Ark regulars Ross Stanley, Riaan Vosloo and Tim Giles is a fully freewheeling affair. Taking hard bop melodies and systematically dismantling them. Rough, ferocious and virtuosic performances by all members of the group are always soulful."
