A list of some of the projects I am currently involved in:
Sean Gibbs Quintet
The Sean Gibbs Quintet is a new band I’ve put together, featuring some of London’s top jazz musicians: Riley Stone-Lonergan (tenor saxophone), Rob Brockway (piano), Calum Gourlay (bass) and Jay Davis (drums). We perform original music of mine, steeped in the jazz tradition and characterised by lyrical melodies, hearty grooves and a deep connection to the blues. Look out for our debut album, which will be released with Ubuntu Music in the summer of 2021.
Scottish National Jazz Orchestra
The SNJO is directed by legendary saxophonist Tommy Smith and widely considered to be one of the foremost contemporary big bands in Europe, having shared the stage with the likes of John Scofield, Gary Burton, Joe Lovano, Kurt Elling and Peter Erskine. Find out more here.
Young Pilgrims is a rock induced brass band led by trombonist Richard Foote. We have played at the Paris, London, Glasgow and Manchester jazz festivals, as well as Love Supreme and Mostly Jazz, Funk & Soul Festival. Check out our debut album here:
Calum Gourlay Big Band
The Calum Gourlay Big Band plays monthly at the Vortex Jazz Club, and features some of the best musicians from the London jazz scene. The repertoire is primarily made up of Calum’s own stunning arrangements.
Mike Fletcher Jazz Orchestra
The Mike Fletcher Jazz Orchestra features top musicians from both the London and Birmingham jazz scenes. They perform Mike’s groundbreaking original music, alongside collaborations with the likes of Anna Meredith, Andrew D’Angelo and Dan Weiss. Find out more here
