Event Details

This Quintet are set to record their debut album in summer 2018. This project sees Alex Merritt and Steve Fishwick joining forces to create their own brand of sophisticated contemporary jazz that draws on the strength of both leaders as accomplished players but also as very individual composers. The rhythm section of John Turville (piano) Mick Coady (bass) and Matt Fishwick/James Maddren(drums) adds even more fire and elegance to the proceedings! The band is set to play numerous dates around the UK in the run-up to their recording building on previous successes at venues such as Ronnie Scotts, where they return in May of this year, (See/hear extracts from previous shows below)- and will follow the album recording with a UK tour in 2019.

The band traditionally has played arrangements of jazz standards and the music of Kenny Dorham/ Joe Henderson, John Coltrane and Lennie Tristano/ Warne Marsh over its 5 year tenure but on upcoming shows will feature more and more of Alex, Steve and also John’s music written for the band.

This is a very exciting project and there is a fantastic synergy amongst all members of the band which makes for very entertaining, stylish and nuanced modern jazz that will appeal equally to jazz afficianados and more mainstream audiences.
