Welcome Jamie Brownfield - ridiculously young professional trumpeter and lover of music with melody!
Jamie teams up with jazz violinist Ben Holder and stunning pianist Tom Kincaid to create a musical tribute to the music of Benny Goodman. yes - we hear you “but Benny was a band leading clarinettist” true, but that’s what makes it much more fun. These guys are not setting out to emulate or copy the great reeds player but they do adore his music and they will take it by the scruff of the neck and create something truly effervescent with it, that much we can promise. Tom Kincaid is a Manchester based pianist who specialises in the older, perhaps less chromatic piano approach with rhythm being its prime element, yet he has a touch that’s at once feather light and yet truly muscular - the closest thing you’ll come to hearing Teddy Wilson live!
