The Quentin Collins/Brandon Allen Quartet
The Quentin Collins/Brandon Allen Quartet are one of the most exciting live bands on the UK & European Jazz scene today. Brandon Allen (saxophone) & Quentin Collins (trumpet) are both established masters of their instruments, and backing them is one of the most sought after rhythm sections around - Ross Stanley on Hammond organ & drummer Enzo Zirilli. Brandon and Ross are no strangers to the Victoria Hall having played here before with Dylan Howe. Between them they have played with names such as; Prince, Jean Toussaint, Stan Tracey, Maceo Parker, Dennis Rollins and Jools Holland. Their sound pays homage to such luminaries as Art Blakey, Joe Henderson, Larry Young & Lee Morgan, but with the leaders' forward thinking drive, and inspired by their passion for hard-bop - notably, 1950s & 60s Blue Note recordings there's a whole lot more going on besides.
