Ronnie’s all-time favourites

Mornington Lockett Quartet
Mornington Lockett (tenor sax)
John Critchinson (piano)
Simon Thorpe (bass)
Spike Wells (drums)


On Mornington: "One of the country's most accomplished improvisers, with a fearsome technique and advanced harmonic approach." - Time Out "One of the most complete masters of the instrument alive today." - Observer "Abrasive and roaring one moment, then cutting suddenly to a gentle caress - exciting stuff." - The Venue "Sounds like Hendrix on sax." - Noel Gallagher.
The mighty Critch played in Ronnie Scott's bands and club for 16 years, accompanying such greats as George Coleman, James Moody, Joe Henderson, Chet Baker and Johnny Griffin, so there is little about the music he doesn't know. One of the UK's most popular bassists, Simon has featured on CDs with Stacey Kent, Bobby Wellins and Alan Barnes. Spike will need no introduction.

GEOFFREY KEEZER (piano)

&

GILLIAN MARGOT (vocals)

Drawn together from across the British Isles on a journey from London - Birmingham - Glasgow, Trope’s musical influences stretch much further afield. They started out reworking the music of Stevie Wonder, making their debut supporting the mighty Nile Rodgers & Chic. In 2015 they recorded their first EP Butterflies & Dragons. A heady mix of Soul, Jazz and Hip-Hop saw comparisons made to Hiatus Kaiyote, Brotherly and Heritage Orchestra. They have featured on BBC Introducing, made the Bandcamp Notable Records section and were recently nominated for
'Best New Artist' alongside The Internet, Dayme Arocena and Kamasi Washington at the 2016 JAJ Awards in Japan.
They are currently preparing a mini album for release, so get ready for some fresh, new sounds!
