Join the 2017 Kenny Wheeler Prize winning Tom Barford and his quintet as they play an exciting set of original compositions alongside some new arrangements of his favourite tunes by the greats of jazz. Some of which include Freddie Hubbard, the late great Wayne Shorter and John Coltrane. Joining Tom will be the incredible James Copus on Trumpet, David Ferris on the piano, Jay Davis on the drums and Ferg Ireland on the bass.
Tom has slowly been making his presence known on the global jazz scene with his well received debut album release Bloomer and with his co-lead album AuB, both released on the Edition Records label with a new AuB album in the pipeline. Previous performance highlights for Tom have included Ronnie Scott’s with Billy Cobham, multiple performances at the Royal Albert Hall, album launches at Kings Place, and multiple international tours as a sideman.
Tom has rarely been seen playing in London over the past year so he is really looking forward to this one. It won’t be one to miss.
“We are witnessing the birth of a new star in the Jazz firmament.” – Evan Parker.
