Dankworth Prize winner at Peterborough Jazz Club
Peterborough Jazz Club welcomes the Tom Green Septet to the Great Northern Hotel on Sunday (24th) at 7.30pm (doors open 7.00pm).
Winner of the 2013 Dankworth Prize for Jazz Composition, Tom Green is a trombonist, composer and arranger described as “a new rising star in the British jazz scene” by Nigel Williams (Jazz FM).
In 2014 he was mentioned three times as Jazzwise “One to Watch”, and was the recipient of a Help Musicians UK Emerging Excellence award. He is a graduate of the Royal Academy of Music jazz course, and has performed at venues including Ronnie Scott’s, the Vortex and 606 Club, as well as at the Montreux, Toronto and Montreal Jazz Festivals.
The Tom Green Septet is an outlet for his original compositions: elegant and lively contemporary chamber jazz tunes with rich harmony, propulsive grooves, and memorable melodies at their
heart. The Septet was formed in November 2012, bringing together seven in-demand young musicians who are all prize-winning bandleaders, composers and performers in their own right.
Tickets- £14 at the door only.
