Just announced: Nat Birchall Quintet, 23rd July.

23 July / 19:30 / More Info / Tickets on sale tomorrow

Hailed by Gilles Peterson as “one of the best musicians in the UK”, Nat Birchallis one of the UK’s most special musicians, a spiritual, soulful saxophonist who has drunk deeply from the endless well that is the music of John Coltrane. Playing tenor and soprano saxophones, he is a band leader, composer and arranger (and occasional DJ) who has grabbed listener’s attention and has found international acclaim for a series of fine albums on Matthew Halsall’s Gondwanalabel as well as more recently his own Sound Soul and Spirit imprint.

He is joined by his core live band.

“In a scene dominated by jazz graduates who are fluent in the language but don’t have much to say, the music of saxophonist Birchall screams “Belief!” “   The Independent  

“Truly transcendental.” MOJO

“Beautifully exemplifies the new flowering of Northern jazz soulfulness…deeply felt and beautifully executed”  Jazzwise Magazine
