A classic Quentin Collins five piece. Always popular, Quentin, born locally in Forest Gate, is an outstanding trumpeter who graduated from the Guildhall School of Music by winning the ‘Best Finals’ prize. Already with a wealth of experience, he has worked with the likes of Fred Wesley, Gregory Porter, Jean Toussaint, Stan Tracey, Norma Winstone, Roy Ayers, John Surman, Roy Hargrove, Tim Garland and Ray Gelato. In 2007 Quentin released his debut solo album ‘If Not Now, Then When?’ on SunlightSquare Records to much critical acclaim. He is now the regular trumpet player for the Kyle Eastwood band, with whom he tours extensively. Quentin’s most recent CD ‘Road Warrior’ attracted rave reviews.
“A Trumpeter whose style is a sizzling update of the Morgan/Hubbard approach” – MOJO.
