Steve Fishwick sextet 5-2-16
Neil Pepper on jazz in Sheffield this month
Friday 5th Feb: Steve Fishwick sextet
Steve Fishwick: trumpet; Frank Basile: baritone sax; Osian Roberts: tenor sax;
Jeb Patton: piano; Mike Karn: bass; Matt Fishwick: drums.
Two great British straight-ahead jazz players, Steve Fishwick on trumpet and Osian Roberts tenor sax, here in the company of three heavyweight stars of the New York scene – Basile, Patton and Karn. A swinging, authentic classic Hard-Bop sextet, in the mould of Horace Silver and Art Blakey’s Jazz Messengers - grounded in tradition but with an ear to the future and touring their new CD.
