“…Phelps is not only keeping the spirit of jazz alive but breathing a whole lot of new life into it.”-Amanda McCormack
JAY PHELPS QUARTET
JPQ are a group of young musicians dedicated to contemporary music of many genres and textures. Displaying Influences of Jazz and a clear understanding of what is both modern and traditional, JPQ is a unique group led Trumpeter and debuting vocalist Jay Phelps. Upcoming shows will preview new material from Phelps’ highly anticipated 2nd album 'Free as the Birds'. Definitely one of hottest new bands from the UK today.
PROJECTIONS: OF MILES
Trumpeter Jay Phelps has put together an all-star line up to re-arrange and perform the wonderful music of Miles Davis spanning over 4 decades. Joining Phelps on the front line will be American Alto saxophone star Logan Richardson and British star Soweto Kinch on tenor. The rhythm section consists of three of the busiest men in the business, Benet Mclean-piano, Tim Thornton-bass and Shane Forbes-drums. Phelps has always cited Davis as one of his greatest inspirations and aims to breathe new life into his music with this brand new project. Definitely a not to be missed show from a hot new band of gentlemen who are all at the forefront of jazz today and leaders in there own right.
