Alex Hitchcock, “a fantastic young talent” (Helen Mayhew, Jazz FM) leads some of the UK’s most distinctive new players. Alex combines the technical mastery now taken for granted with an enquiring mind as player/composer and a warm way with an audience. James Copus’ beautiful brassy sound projects an original conception and the rhythm team seems able to do it all. (Will Barry has just been named Musicians’ Company Young Jazz Musician of the Year). The music will range from classic jazz tunes to attractive originals and will be thrillingly played.
