An exciting night in store with bass player /composer Nigel's new quartet. After many years working as sideman with some of the best UK and European jazz musicians, Nigel is again leading his own band and will be featuring some new compositions as well as tracks from his acclaimed Quintet CD Yoichi.  The lineup includes Nigel's long-time collaborator and without doubt one of the greatest UK jazz pianists Mark Edwards, the wonderfully creative and musical drummer Winston Clifford and the awesome award winning tenor saxist Paul Booth.

Nigel's striking, original, accessible compositions range from swinging hard bop to memorable expansive and moody lyrical themes which allow the natural creativity of the band to really flourish and draw in the listener. A long awaited new recording of the quartet is also in the pipeline for later in the year.
