Nigel Price - guitar, Vasilis Xenopoulos - tenor Sax, Ross Stanley - organ, Laura Klain - drums

Over a career spanning more than 25 years, award winning jazz guitarist Nigel Price has become widely acknowledged as one of the hardest working musicians in the business. Musically, his blend of flowing bebop lines, deep blues sensibility and his mastery of chording continue to delight audiences and fellow musicians alike. His career highlights include a support show for Gladys Knight at The Royal Albert Hall and an appearance on Van Morrison’s recent album Keep Me Singing.

He has worked tirelessly to organise his own tours (including a 56 date tour in late 2016) and has picked up a Parliamentary Jazz Award (Best Jazz Ensemble, 2010), a nomination for a British Jazz Award (Best Guitarist, 2014) and a British Jazz Award (Best Guitarist, 2016) along the way. Nigel is a regular performer at London’s Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club where he has made more than 500 appearances.

He has recently released a new CD "Wes Reimagined" to great acclaim, with 4-star reviews in BBC Music Magazine, Jazzwise and many more. The album features the trio plus guest saxophonists and strings, you can have a listen and even purchase it on Bandcamp.

Nigel is joined by Greek saxophonist Vasilis Xenopoulos who is a graduate of Berklee College in Boston, and now based in London. He has recently released new album Dexterity - The Music of Dexter Gordon. “One of the most fiery young saxophonists around blazes a path through the hard bop repertoire" (The Times) ★★★★

Ross Stanley is one of the UK's finest pianists and organists, and has worked with many prominent players such as Jim Mullen, Gareth Lockrane and US sax player Seamus Blake.

On drums we're very excited to welcome Laura Klain. Laura was born in Tolouse, France, but then moved to Italy where she studied at the Rome Conservatory. She has become a star of the Italian jazz scene and is well known across Europe.

The band are touring with Arts Council support.
