Jonny Bruce Organ Quartet

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.
