March’s Con Cellar gig isn’t far away, and as ever we’ve got two amazing bands for your listening pleasure!
Freddie Gavita Quartet:
Freddie Gavita – trumpet / compositions
Tom Cawley – piano
Calum Gourlay – bass
Dave Hamblett – drums
Despite being perhaps best known as the winner of West Hampstead Life’s ‘Tweet of the Year 2014‘ competition, Freddie Gavita is also a remarkable trumpeter and composer and winner of the British Jazz Award for Rising Star in 2008, the BBC Maida Vale Session of the Year in 2010, and the Future Inns Jazz Award 2010. For this gig he is joined by the amazing band of Tom Cawley, Calum Gourlay and Dave Hamblett.
James Allsopp Standards Trio
James Allsopp – saxophone
Conor Chaplin – bass
Tim Giles – drums
A true virtuoso, James Allsopp has found great renown for his original compositions and playing in his projects such as ‘The Golden Age of Steam’ and the Perrier Award-Winning ‘Fraud’, but the classic jazz tradition has always been present as well. This trio pays homage to some of Allsopp’s favourite songs and musicians, and finds him in the impeccable company of the very brilliant Conor Chaplin and Tim Giles.
