21st February 2010………….Will Collier Septet
First , thanks to all who came down last week.
As per usual Gareth Lochrane, Dominic Howles and Nick Tomalin were fantastic!!!
This Sunday we have the Will Collier Septet, it’s not often we have a four brass front line so come on down and hear the big sound!!!!
The Will Collier Septet has been playing on the London circuit for the past four years, steadily building a following with their grooving, highly melodic originals drawing on the likes of The Bad Plus, Dave Holland and the Tin Hat Trio. Their exceptional debut recording, ‘Everybody Loves the Will Collier Septet’, was released on the F-IRE record label in 2008.
“The Will Collier Septet’s debut recording is a beautiful work. Will is a fine composer” – Kenny Wheeler.
“A forward looking vision of music” – Colin Towns
“To me the music of the Will Collier Septet has so many things of what i love about music; beautiful melody, groove, individuality, sincerity, much feeling, surprising structures. But most of all it sounds like people expressing together as one in a pure and clear way. I enjoy alot to listen!” – Seb Rochford (Polar Bear, Acoustic Ladyland…)
“Will Collier – a gifted young, British double bassist Collier leads a dynamite septet stylistically recalling the likes of Kenny Wheeler, Dave Holland, Tin Hat Trio, Bad Plus and Medeski Martin and Wood. Very Impressive.” – Tom Barlow, Jazzwise
“Great tunes, really fresh sounding and like the detail” Liam Noble
The line up Sunday is Will Collier-bass, Bob Dowell-trombone, Mike Lesirge- alto sax, Jo Auckland-trumpet, Ben Somers-tenor sax, Ed Sheldrake-piano, , Ben Reynolds-drums.
All the best and I hope to see you Sunday,
