Jamie Brownfield Quartet play Huddersfield Jazz
"Rising Star of British Jazz" awards winner, Jamie Brownfield, and his fresh and exciting quartet,have a vast range of experience in different styles of music and play their own mix of New orleans street beat, swing and reggae.
They are heavily influenced by the likes of Harry Connick Junior, Leroy Jones, Clark Terry, Oscar Peterson and Christian McBride, to name only a few. From original New Orleans Street Beat tunes such as “The Happy Feet Blues", to their own compositions, you can hear the roots of the music they listen to come out in their performances.
The band members have played with such notables as Bruce Adams, Shakin' Stevens, Scott Hamilton, Alan Barnes and Digby Fairweather, and have played all over the world from Europe, to Scandinavia, and the United States.
“These guys were great ............ I thought I would just nip in and take a few pictures but after a few minutes I was hooked and stayed for the whole set!” Martin Singleton, Marsden Jazz Festival 2016
