Tom Syson Sextet Album Launch Event

Friday 9 June 2017

The Quarry Theatre, St Peters Street, Bedford MK40 2NN

Conscia Jazz presents the ‘Tom Syson Sextet’ on the 9th of June at the prestigious Quarry Theatre. They will be releasing their highly anticipated debut album ‘Green’ at this event, so it is set to be an exciting evening! It will also be the second gig on their 10-date UK tour, which sees them play at, amongst other events, the Glasgow Jazz Festival and the Manchester Jazz Festival.

After completing a UK tour in February 2016, the Tom Syson Sextet recorded their debut album ‘Green’ at Peter Gabriel’s Real World Studios in August. The album was produced by Percy Pursglove and featured the JazzFm Vocalist of the Year 2016 Lauren Kinsella on a track. It is entirely made up from original material written by Tom, and creates a variety of exciting textures to keep audiences on their toes, with a focus on rich melodies.

The sextet is made up of some of the best young UK based musicians. Jonathan Silk on Drums, Pete Hutchison on Double Bass, David Ferris on Piano, Ben Lee on Guitar, Vittorio Mura on Tenor Saxophone and Tom Syson on Trumpet. 

Tom Syson is a trumpeter and creative musician based in Bedfordshire. He is, ‘one of the most interesting voices in the emerging generation of improvisers’ and is ‘happy to take risks’. He has played with musicians such as Arnie Somogyi, Alex Garnett and Jacqui Dankworth, and has played at venues/events such as Ronnie Scotts, Cheltenham Jazz Festival, The Barbican and The Royal Albert Hall. Tom currently plays lead trumpet in The Birmingham Jazz Orchestra, and also holds a chair in the National Youth Jazz Orchestra. “He is a very good musician and someone who really cares about the music” - JACQUI DANKWORTH.

The event starts at 8pm with tickets costing £10 for adults and £8 for concessions, and are available at conscia.org.
