Biography

The Northern Quartet Jazz Quintet is a contemporary and 'trad' jazz quintet comprising active, award-winning young musicians who met at the Royal Northern College of Music.

Since forming in 2014, have been committed to realizing forward-looking original music, which directs the progressive energy of post-bop Miles Davis and Wynton Marsalis onto the contemporary plane of Christian Scott and Bill Laurence, distilling an eclectic sound of their own.

The Northern Quartet Jazz Quintet have recently performed to capacity audiences at the Manchester, Marsden and Lancaster Jazz Festivals, as well as at Matt & Phred’s and the Bridgewater Hall, and look forward to forthcoming performances that include the Gateshead, Southport, Liverpool and Scarborough Jazz Festivals. Meanwhile, their composition ‘Chagrin’ is featured on the first ever CD of selected performers at the Marsden Jazz Festival, and they are currently preparing for the release of their debut EP.
