Guildford Jazz: Latin Jazz Salsa with Heads South

Heads South plays superb Latin Jazz combining Cuban and other Latin rhythms with distinctive melodies in an exhilarating repertoire of original and classic tunes. The Band is led by John Harriman on piano/organ and features top UK trumpeter Steve Waterman, Venezuelan bassist Adolfredo Pulido, Cuban percussionist Chino Martell Morgan on congas, bongos, cajon, guiro and Buster Birch on drums, timbale, castanets, frame drum.

Heads South has released two albums to critical acclaim, and was winner from more than 75 bands nationwide of the UK Jazz Services National Touring Forum award.

Think Buena Vista Social Club in a smaller package, add the excitement of Jazz, tuneful melody, and imbibe the warmth of a Latin evening, grooving into the night…

“A refreshing cultural mix of players with outstanding jazz credentials.. Cuban rhythms dominate, rocking syncopated percussion…well worth seeing” The Gig Guide

“Spare, crisp, invigorating Latin jazz…Waterman’s mastery of this idiom suits Harriman’s deceptively simple compositions to perfection’ The Observer

“Impeccable musicianship” The Times
