Jonny Bruce Bruce with his all-star Quintet.
We kicked off 2023 with a blisteringly good gig from the Jonny Bruce Quartet so who better to present our End of Year / Christmas Special. For tonight's Quintet line up Jonny has invited his old sidekick and Bristol Jazz Guitar Icon, the totally brilliant Denny Ilet and one of the UK's top bassist the wonderful Ashley John Long. Joining Jonny in the front-line is the highly rated tenor saxophonist Greg Sterland and completing the band we have one of the most exciting young musicians to have emerged on to the Bristol scene in years, the magnificent Alex Goodyear on drums.
Jonny Bruce is a superb trumpeter, based in Bristol but with a national reputation. He is fluent in the whole history of jazz trumpet as he demonstrated some years back in his Trumpet Kings project, in which he covered pieces from Louis Armstrong through to Freddie Hubbard. You may have seen him playing around Bristol with the Moscow Drug Club, Brass Junkies and the Dockside Latin Orchestra. He also played lead trumpet in a Harry James style with the Bruce/Ilett Big Band, which headlined the Bristol Jazz and Blues Festival for several years running.
For tonight Jonny has put together a hard-bop and Blue Note style set, including tunes from Roy Hargrove, Horace Silver, Charles Mingus and Stan Getz. Don't miss it, this is going to be a good one.
Tickets are also available at TREBLEROCK Guitar Shop, 52 The Mall in Clifton Village.
