  • Overview
  • More Info

This all-star group, led by the award-winning pianist John Turville, and featuring a frontline of the lyrical and multi-faceted trumpeter Robbie Robson and the world-renowned composer and saxophonist Julian Arguelles, was assembled in 2017 to explore a wide-ranging set of new music composed by John as well as material from Julian and new arrangements of choice repertoire from Tonino Horta, Michael Petrucciani and John Coltrane.

They are touring to promote their debut album Head First, supported generously by Arts Council England.

Taking inspiration from British jazz legends John Taylor and Kenny Wheeler, the Argentine composer and tango pianist Diego Schissi, and imbued with a deep love of the jazz and classical tradition, John’s writing is refined and wide-ranging, from lyrical ballads and spiky rhythmic compositions to reflective classical vignettes and free jazz
