Iain Ballamy - saxophone
Huw Warren - piano

FITR are extremely excited to present two of the UK's greatest ever jazz musicians. Iain and Huw have yard long CVs that include associations with, amongst others, Loose Tubes, Kenny Wheeler, Perfect Houseplants, Hermeto Pascoal, Carla Bley and Joanna McGregor. Most recently they have worked together in the trio Quercus, completed by legendary folk singer June Tabor and have released two critically acclaimed albums on the ECM label. We are extremely lucky to have these two giants of the music to play at Fringe In The Round!

Alex Merritt - saxophone
Nick Malcolm - trumpet
Henrik Jensen - bass
Dave Smith - drums

Alex and Nick allow themselves one set in the first series of FITR, and are thrilled to be joined by stellar rhythm section of Henrik Jensen on double bass (Followed by Thirteen, The Puppini Sisters) and Dave Smith on drums (Mark Lockheart, Robert Plant). Focusing on lesser know compositions from the core jazz repertoire, with a particular emphasis on pieces by Thelonious Monk and Wayne Shorter, this should be a set of contemporary jazz played at the highest level; plenty of swing, groove and interaction coming from a joyous celebration of the jazz tradition.
