Guildford Jazz - SIMON SPILLETT & PETE LONG QUINTET - Salute to the Jazz Couriers

An exciting and heartfelt homage by two of the top UK jazz authorities to the legendary British two-tenor quintet of the 1950s co-led by Ronnie Scott and Tubby Hayes. 

Featuring original exciting arrangements faithfully recreated by Echoes of Ellington bandleader and saxophonist Pete Long along with celebrated saxophonist and author of the universally acclaimed Tubby Hayes biography Long Shadow of the Little Giant Simon Spillett.

In the time-honoured way you can expect plenty of up tempo tenor jousting, bell notes bouncing from wall to wall and cascades of bebop quavers coruscating the continuum!

Expect such favourites as the original arrangements of Cheek To Cheek, Love Walked In and The Serpent, as well as some of Tubbys later standards, all linked together with stories and comments from the two front men.

With Rob Barron on piano, Pete Cater on drums, Marianne Windham on bass
