Charlie Bates Sextet
After the success of his debut big band album, Charlie Bates has formed an exciting new sextet to play original new music and arrangements. His music has been labelled ‘impressive and inventive’ by the Guardian’s John Fordham and has been influenced by a variety of musicians, including Kenny Wheeler, John Taylor, Hans Koller and Gwilym Simcock.
The sextet will feature trumpet virtuoso Percy Pursglove accompanied by recent Conservatoire graduates Josh Tagg (trombone) and Josh Schofield (alto); Jonathan Silk on the drums, Sam Ingvorsen on Bass and Charlie himself on the piano.
Line Up: Charlie Bates - Piano, Percy Pursglove - trumpet, Josh Schofield - Alto sax, Josh Tagg - Trombone, Sam Ingvorsen - Bass and Jonathan Silk - Drums
