Winner of the 2018 BBC Young Jazz Musician of the year, Xhosa Cole brings together an all-star chordless quartet featuring some of finest talent based in the UK. The band embodies the spirit of the Bebop and Hard Bop greats.
With a repertoire inspired by the great music of Sonny Rollins, Clifford Brown and Gigi Gryce they’ll light up the stage with all the passion, edge and spontaneity reminiscent of this era. Expect classic arrangements and contemporary takes on standards, as well as original works from members of the band.
“Xhosa’s performance was so heartfelt, sincere and communicative. It’s easy to see he has such a deep and genuine love of the tradition.” – Iain Ballamy
