Our intimate Late Night Jazz series presents sensational music in the Royal Albert Hall’s Elgar Room.
The Alex Hitchcock Quintet features some of the most exciting and distinctive rising stars from London’s vibrant jazz scene. 2016 performances included sold-out shows at the London Jazz Festival and New Generation Jazz at The Verdict, Brighton.
Taking its compositional cue from an Anglo-American range of influences including Kneebody, Ambrose Akinmusire, and Jasper Hoiby, the group showcases a spirit of openness and interaction grounded in its members’ close musical relationships, while blurring the boundary between written and improvised music.
Featuring trumpeter James Copus (Stan Sulzmann’s Neon Orchestra), pianist Will Barry (Jasper Hoiby’s Fellow Creatures), bassist Joe Downard (NYJO) and firebrand drummer Jay Davis (Big Bad Wolf).
