Five-Way Split featuring Quentin Collins & Vasilis Xenopoulos

606 Club, SW10 0QD , [Venue Details]

This quintet features the powerhouse frontline of trumpeter Quentin Collins, known for his work with the internationally acclaimed Kyle Eastwood band, the highly regarded Vasilis Xenopoulos (Shez Raja) on sax and the golden touch of pianist Rob Barron (Al Jarreau, Paloma Faith).

Added to this is virtuosic bassist Matyas Hofecker and rock-solid drummer Matt Home. The band’s vision is to carry on the lineage of groups like Art Blakey’s Jazz Messengers as well mirroring the New York contemporary-bop scene. From this inspiration, the band presents a sound that respects the tradition of the hard-bop era whilst also bringing it up to date for today’s audience. With carefully crafted and imaginative original compositions, along with hip, swinging material by greats like Jimmy Heath, Cedar Walton and Horace Silver (as heard on their recent album, "All the Way" on Ubuntu Music), Five-Way Split delivers a night of the best swinging and soulful music in town.

"Collins...breathtaking" HMV Magazine; "A trumpeter whose style is a sizzling update of the Morgan/Hubbard approach” MOJO Magazine; “Xenopoulos...outstanding” Guardian; “Dashing Greek tenorist… real passion…full-blooded, hard-swinging solos” Evening Standard
