Witney Jazz Presents: Stuart Henderson Quartet

John Birks ‘Dizzy' Gillespie is perhaps best known for bringing the Latin rhythms of Brazil to New York and the world’s jazz scene, but he was also a brilliant be-bop and straight ahead jazz trumpeter - some say perhaps one of the greatest. A member of numerous early jazz orchestras he got his big break working with Cab Calloway and then worked with Earl Hines and Billy Eckstine. His compositions and his work with a ‘Who’s Who’ of USA and European legends defines him, as well as his trademark ‘bullfrog’ cheeks and strangely-angled trumpet horn. Stuart Henderson has a reputation as a great all round trumpet player - superbly competent on in all jazz styles and a successful band leader and educator. He beings a distinctive quartet to Witney Jazz to play a broad selection of the music that made ‘Dizzy’ such a household jazz name - with Pete Billington on piano, Paul Jefferies on bass and Simon Price on drums.
