Simon Spillett is a musician with a considerable following and is considered by many to be the natural heir to the late, great Tubby Hayes. He is a technically accomplished and highly fluent saxophone soloist who cites Hayes as his primary source of inspiration.
Not only is Bruce Adams one of the jazz scene’s most dramatic and stimulating performers, he is also one of its most affable companions to fellow musicians and audiences alike. Bruce has the ability to produce jazz in a great range of styles, while all the time maintaining his own personal approach and possesses a level of musicality that enables him to get the right ‘feel’ for whichever genre he chooses.
