Jazz at the Blue Lamp
Steve Fishwick Sextet
The Steve Fishwick sextet is an exciting UK/USA collaboration that has been in existence since 2013 when they did their first UK tour and recorded their first CD When Night Falls. The 2016 tour is their third UK tour and is in promotion of their second CD In The Empire State which was recorded last September in NYC at the end of a run of seven gigs (at Dizzy's Club Coca Cola, smalls Jazz Club and Smoke as part of Dave Douglas' Festival of New Trumpet Music). As well as Frank Basile on Baritone this latest line up boasts two more of NYCs best jazz musicians, pianist Jeb Patton and bassist Mike Karn who's combined list of credits reads like a who's who of jazz. Rounding out the line up will be long standing collaborators Steve Fishwick and Osian Roberts on Trumpet and Tenor respectively and Matt Fishwick on drums, himself a one time NYC resident between 2005 and 2010 and presently one of the most in demand jazz drummers in the UK. Expect hard swinging originals and standards rooted in 1950s/60s Hard Bop and beyond!
