Matt Roberts Sextet at Heart

Lesley Jeffries writes

Saturday 25th April: Matt Roberts Sextet plays the music of Fats Navarro

Graduate of Leeds College of Music and Trinity College of Music, Matt Roberts is a London-based trumpeter and composer who regularly appears at large venues and international festivals with his band Gentleman’s Dub Club and has recently worked with Martha Reeves and the Vandellas, Paloma Faith, Hurts and Everything Everything. Recent visits to jazz-at-heart have included tributes to great trumpeters such as Miles Davis, Freddie Hubbard and Lee Morgan. For this occasion, Matt and his sextet will be paying tribute to the short-lived, but influential bebop trumpeter Fats Navarro. Fats performed and recorded with Charlie Parker, Dexter Gordon, Tadd Dameron, Lionel Hampton, Charles Mingus and many more. Expect a combination of choice standards alongside more obscure bebop compositions.

Don't forget - Matt and the sextet are doing a workshop 2.30 - 5pm (£15) before the gig at 7.30
