‘Jim Rattigan displays a phenomenal technique. Emotional warmth and feeling for jazz permeates his playing’ – Jazzwise Magazine
‘The hard-to-achieve balance between scored ensemble and improvisation is perfect. And it’s quite a band, too, each one of the twelve a player of note.’ – Dave Gelly, The Observer
Presenting timeless standards and scintillating originals from his acclaimed album, ‘Strong Tea‘, jazz French Horn master Jim Rattigan, a former member of Michael Brecker’s Quindectet and the McCoy Tyner Big Band, leads an exceptionally dynamic ensemble of three saxes, three trumpets, two trombones, French horn, piano, double bass and drums.
Comprising some of the most exciting and in-demand instrumentalists in the UK, this innovative all-star line up features Martin Speake, Andy Panayi & Mick Foster (alto, tenor & baritone saxes); Percy Pursglove, Steve Fishwick & Robbie Robson (trumpets); Mark Nightingale & Sarah Williams (tenor & bass trombones), with Hans Koller (piano), Dave Whitford (bass) and Martin France (drums).
