  • Overview
  • More Info

A powerhouse quintet that combines a compelling, adventurous ear for melody with virtuosic improvising. The band’s increasingly burgeoning reputation on the international jazz stage was confirmed by first place at the Conad Jazz Contest at the 2018 Umbria Jazz Festival.

In a breakthrough year in 2018, a 15-date nationwide tour of their acclaimed debut EP was followed by a sold-out launch at Pizza Express Jazz Club in London and performances at Ronnie Scott’s and Love Supreme Festival. Critic John Fordham called the EP ‘an impressive calling card for a band with a bright future’. ​

Other highlights from the past year include performances at the London and Cambridge Jazz Festivals, the Royal Albert Hall and Jazz in the Round, as well as touring to Spain, Hungary and Poland and features on BBC Radio 3, JazzFM and Hungarian television. ​
