ALEX HITCHCOCK QUARTET
ALEX HITCHCOCK QUARTET
ON FRIDAY 15TH NOVEMBER 2019 AT 20.00 AT CROOKES SOCIAL CLUB

Alex Hitchcock: sax; Will Barry: piano; Ben Tiberio: bass; Shane Forbes: drums

Described by Jazzwise as part of ‘the shape of jazz to come’, saxophonist Alex Hitchcock made a big impression in Sheffield with his quintet in Spring 2018 and is now joined by three acclaimed improvising musicians, including pianist Will Barry who has particularly impressed on previous visits to Sheffield. The group won the prestigious Peter Whittingham Jazz Award in 2018 and it plays original music that is firmly rooted in the jazz tradition, but the powerhouse rhythm section are unafraid to take the music in bold new directions. Expect driving swing as well as propulsive grooves and virtuosic soloing.
