Jon crespo quintet
Thu 19th Apr 18 edit
Jon Crespo returns to Cardiff to lead an all star quintet made up of some of South Wales’ finest jazz musicians. In this special performance Jon and the group will pay tribute to some of his favourite trumpet influences including Miles Davis, Freddie Hubbard, Lee Morgan, Clifford Brown and Roy Hargrove.
Using these players as a starting point the group will explore the rich history of the trumpet as a front line instrument in the jazz group. This lineage starts with Louis Armstrong and continues to evolve and develop up to the present day.
The group will present their own interpretations of such classics as Ready Freddie, the Sidewinder, Jordu, Sandu, Cherokee and many more.
Jon leads from the front supported by Tommy Harris on saxes, Dave Jones on piano, Ashley John Long on bass and Ian Poole on drums.
