BBQ: Brownfield - Byrne Quintet

 

 

The Brownfield Byrne Quintet, co-led by two gifted young North Wales musicians, brings a fresh approach to standards and bebop favourites from the Blue Note era of the 40s

and 50s as well as some choice material from the swinging 30s. Tenor saxophonist and arranger LIAM BYRNE is a postgraduate of London’s Guildhall School of Music and has a

growing reputation as a torchbearer of the tenor saxophone and bebop tradition, while JAMIE BROWNFIELD, whose style runs the gamut of jazz trumpet from bebop to New

Orleans, is a past winner of the Rising Star category at the British Jazz Awards.

 

With ANDY HULME (guitar), ED HARRISON (double bass),

and JACK COTTERILL (drums)

 

Described by the Guardian's Dave Gelly as “crisp, polished and full of life, playing some of the tastiest tunes from the days of bebop, swing and even before”
