Over his forty-year career as a first-rate jazz drummer, Jeff Williams has accompanied the likes of Dizzy Gillespie, Joe Lovano, Kenny Wheeler and Mike Gibbs, to name a few. Tonight, see him perform as part of two exceptional ensembles.

The evening kicks off with a opening set from the Mike Fletcher Trio. After being nominated by THSH to take part in the ECHO Rising Stars programme 2014/15, Mike has the opportunity to tour with this trio in concert halls across the continent. Enjoy music characterised by its lyricism, subtle simplicity and exploratory interplay.

This set is followed by a extended performance from the Jeff Williams Sextet, who have played at the London Jazz Festival for the last three years and recorded their new CD, Concert In The Amazon, live in the magnificent Manaus Opera House.

Music that seethes with intelligence, creativity and zest. Jazzviews on the Jeff Williams Sextet
