‘Sax virtuoso… one to watch’ – Jazzwise

'If I suggest that it reminded me of Miles Davis’s classic quintet with Wayne Shorter, that will give you some idea of the impact it had on me. It’s tightly disciplined, in the best sense of the word, with the front-line of Hitchcock and Copus playing as one, but with a sense of space that allows soloists to explore the themes in any direction they choose’ –



The Alex Hitchcock Quintet ('a fantastic talent' – Helen Mayhew, JazzFM) play at Edinburgh's Jazz Bar supporting their debut CD 'Live at the London and Cambridge Jazz Festivals', as part of a 14-date UK tour.

Having already made their mark as sidemen with an impressive list of jazz luminaries ranging from Jasper Høiby through Chris Potter to Elliot Galvin, the quintet features five of the most creative rising stars of the UK's jazz scene.

Highlights from the past year include performances at Love Supreme Festival, the Royal Albert Hall, and the London Jazz Festival, as well as a tour of Hungary and Poland and radio play on BBC Radio 3 and JazzFM.

Alex Hitchcock – tenor sax
James Copus – trumpet/flugelhorn
Will Barry – piano
Joe Downard – bass
Jay Davis – drums
