    The Quartet :-

    Gabriel Latchin – piano Gabriel is fast becoming recognised as one of the country's leading pianists. His hard-swinging, adventurous approach often draws comparisons to his many influences, including Herbie Hancock,  Bill Evans and Phineas Newborn.  Above all, Gabriel plays music that  feels  good, for people, not just musicians.  As the master Art Blakey put it : - "We are here to have a ball !”

    Tom Farmer – double bass Tom is a member of Empirical,  a British jazz group, formed in 2007, involving four young British jazz musicians who present  projects, performances and recordings who was featured on Jamie Cullum's radio show.  Tom last appeared at the Club in January 2016 with his ‘Big Screen Take One’.

    Steve Brown – drums Winner of the prestigious 2014 British Jazz Awards for best drummer.  Steve is hugely popular with jazz audiences everywhere and he has become 'first call' for an impressive array of jazz stars with his assured swinging drumming.

    Colin Oxley is one of the UK's most respected jazz guitarists. He has toured internationally and recorded extensively as a member of Stacey Kent's group, and has performed with many top players in the UK and US including Stacey Kent, Scott Hamilton, Michael Garrick and the John Wilson Orchestra.
