The composer and trumpeter Henry Lowther performs alongside Pete Hurst on tenor sax, Barry Green on piano, Dave Green on bass and Paul Clarvis on drums. Henry was Birmingham Jazz’s first choice of Curator for our Legends Festival, and this is his first return since that highly successful event in 2015.
Henry Lowther's STILLWATERS was born of a long association and friendship, going back more than twenty years, between Henry and bassist Dave Green. They both felt that the time was right to play the music of their choice, together with some of the finest jazz musicians working in Britain today. As result STILLWATERS is a highly accomplished, tightly ensembled and creative band combining long experience with youthful exuberance and freshness. The music is varied with original compositions by Henry and other band members, ranging from gentle melodic music, which reflects the bands name, through to dynamic free improvisation. The occasional jazz standard is included to acknowledge the tradition. The result is an immediately classic band sound.
Still Waters was chosen by the BBC to represent the UK at the 2Oth Umbrian Jazz Festival.
Line-up is: Henry Lowther - trumpet, Pete Hurst - tenor sax, Barry Green - piano, Dave Green - bass, Paul Clarvis - drums
