About the event

We kick off the Fringe Jazz Autumn season with the brilliant trumpeter Jonny Bruce and his new Organ Quartet. Joining Jonny in the front-line is the highly rated tenor saxophonist Greg Sterland who will be playing at the club for the first time. The line-up is completed by two young musicians who made a big impression at the club earlier this year with the Dan Newberry Quartet, the superb keyboard player Guy Shotton and on drums it's Alex Goodyear, who is becoming one of the most in demand players on both the Bristol and Cardiff scenes due to his stylistic versatility and infectious enthusiasm for all types of jazz.

Jonny Bruce is a superb trumpeter, based in Bristol but with a national reputation. He is fluent in the whole history of jazz trumpet as he demonstrated some years back in his Trumpet Kings project, in which he covered pieces from Louis Armstrong through to Freddie Hubbard. You may have seen him playing around Bristol with the Moscow Drug Club, Brass Junkies and the Dockside Latin Orchestra. He also played lead trumpet in a Harry James style with the Bruce / Ilett Big Band, which headlined the Bristol Jazz and Blues Festival for several years running.

For this new Hammond organ based line-up Jonny has put together a more hard-bop and Blue Note style set, including tunes from Horace Silver, Roy Hargrove and Stan Getz.
