Quentin Collins Organ Quartet featuring Leo Richardson

Quentin Collins and Leo Richardson join forces to bring you a special one-off performance for the EFG London Jazz festival, of the seminal Larry Young album “Unity”, released on Blue Note records in 1966. Quentin and Leo have put together an incredible quartet to bring this album to life and will be joined by the incomparable Ross Stanley on organ and the incredible Will Glaser on drums. A night not to be missed!

Quentin Collins

Brought up around the sounds of jazz by a music-loving father, Quentin had seen many of the greats by a young age, including Dizzy Gillespie, Lionel Hampton & Dave Brubeck. This had a profound influence upon his decision to become a professional musician.

In 20 years as a professional, Quentin has established himself as one of the UK’s top Jazz/Commercial trumpeters, having performed, toured and recorded with a plethora of internationally renowned artists across many genres. These include Fred Wesley, Gregory Porter, Mark Ronson, Kyle Eastwood, Omar, Basement Jaxx, Roy Ayers, Alicia Keys, Dennis Rollins and Mulatu Astatke.

Quentin released his debut solo album, ‘If Not Now, Then When?’, on SunlightSquare Records in 2007. It received much critical acclaim:

Proving that Collins knows a thing or two about good song writing, ‘If Not Now, Then When?’ is an impressively intense debut.-Jazzwise Magazine

This debut album by England’s top young trumpet master is breathtaking from start to finish, and is sure to catapult Quentin to stardom and yet more critical acclaim.-HMV Magazine

 

Leo Richardson

Is widely recognised to be one of London’s leading Jazz Tenor Saxophonists. He is best known for his honest, straight-head, contemporary hard-bop style and regularly hosts the Late Late Show at Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club with his own quartet.

His most significant influences include John Coltrane, Joe Henderson, Dexter Gordon, Horace Silver and Art Blakey.

The recent release of Leo’s debut album ‘The Chase’, continues to make waves, alongside his notable performance and recording credits for artists which include: Jamie Callum, Gregory Porter, The BBC Proms, Il Divo and The Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Orchestra.

In 2017, The Leo Richardson Quartet toured the UK in November-December, in support of their debut album, The Chase, on Ubuntu Music. The album was selected by The Times newspaper as one of the Top 10 Jazz Albums of 2017 and one of the Top 100 Albums of all music genres. The success of the album and the tour led to the Quartet’s debut performance at this year’s Love Supreme Jazz Festival.
