Ross Hicks

This Trio have released a new album which is a series of compositions by Cardiff Jazz Pianist Ross Hicks, it’s the result of a wide array of his influences with his own spin on things. One of the tunes described by Ian Mann (The JazzMan) as an “intelligent and intriguing piece of writing”.


Ross Hicks is a graduate from the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama and has since been a full time freelance musician, working in and around Wales with numerous bands, notably a few dates recently on a mini tour with saxophonist Simon Spillet. “Hicks was a revelation ideas emerge and developed and Injected drama even as the pieces unfolded at near terminal velocity” “For a young musician, he exhibits an impressive level of maturity as a soloist And has already accrued remarkable knowledge of jazz piano styles” - TheJazzMann But now works with these two fine musicians
