The ALEX HITCHCOCK QUINTET features some of the most exciting rising stars from London’s vibrant jazz scene. After appearances at the London Jazz Festival and the Royal Albert Hall in the UK, this is their first appearance in Europe. Taking its compositional cue from an Anglo-American range of influences including Kneebody, Ambrose Akinmusire, and Jasper Hoiby, the group showcases a spirit of openness and interaction grounded in its members’ close musical relationships.
‘A fantastic young talent’ – Helen Mayhew, Jazz FM ‘Incredible young lion of the tenor sax’ – Gareth Lockrane ‘One to watch’ – Jazzwise '...effectively mixed a traditional tenor-ballad warmth with a brisk contemporary attack' – John Fordham, The Guardian 'Hitchcock blows contemporary post-Coltrane tenor soaring up into the outer limits’ – Bebop Spoken Here
