Since moving to New York in 2001, Frank Basile has been fortunate to establish himself as one of today’s most in-demand baritone saxophonists.

Dubbed a “prized sideman” by The New Yorker, Basile has been called upon to perform with, record with, and tour the world with many of jazz’s finest musicians and ensembles. Among this distinguished list are The Vanguard Jazz Orchestra, The Dizzy Gillespie All-Star Big Band, The Jimmy Heath Big Band, The Bob Mintzer Big Band, The Jon Faddis Jazz Orchestra, The Joe Lovano Nonet, The Dave Holland Big Band, Dennis Mackrel’s Manhattan Symphony Jazz Orchestra, The Christian McBride Big Band, The Count Basie Orchestra, Michael Bublé, Pablo Mayor’s Folklore Urbano, The Richie Vitale Quintet, The Fabien Mary Quintet.

Steve Fishwick has firmly established himself as one of the leading jazz trumpet players in the UK and Europe, having performed with most of the leading European jazz musicians and many USA legends including Anita O’ Day (recording with her on her last album ‘Indestructible!’), Ron Carter, Jimmy Heath, Cedar Walton, Peter Washington, Dick Oattes, Peter Erskine, Tim Lefebvre, Eric Harland, Scott Hamilton, Grant Stewart, Ken Peplowski, Herb Geller, Lanny Morgan, Bruce Barth, Richie Cole, Ben Dixon, Bob Cranshaw, Earl May, Lew Soloff, Clifford Jarvis, Ronnie Cuber, Keith Copland, John Riley, Tardo Hammer, Aaron Diehl, Brad Leali, Grant Stewart, and Hod O’ Brien.

Frank and Steve join forces in this new quintet featuring powerhouse UK pianist Leon Greening and rising stars Eleazar Ruiz Spreafico on bass and Robbie Ellison on drums.  Expect hard swinging, grooving feel-good sounds from the 1950s-60s Hard Bop tradition!
