Hermon Jazz: Clark Tracey Quintet ft. James Copus on Thursday 5th March 2020

The Hermon Jazz spring programme gets off to a well-impressive start with the Clark Tracey Quintet, a group that acts as a springboard and showcase for exceptionally talented young Jazz musicians who make their way onto the UK-scene. The group has recently recorded its debut CD entitled No Doubt and has already received critical acclaim for its live appearances at Ronnie Scott’s Club, Swanage Jazz Festival and the South Coast Jazz Festival. The young players are led by distinguished drummer Clark Tracey, who has been at the forefront of British jazz for over 40 years, starting his own career as professional, performing musician in 1978 at the tender age of 17 when joining the bands of his father, iconic pianist Stan Tracey CBE. This concert will be a delightful treat for anybody who appreciates an evening of music routed in British Jazz traditions laced with the spirit of youthful exploration!

‘Copus is a more exciting trumpet player than Miles.’ - Bebop Spoken Here

‘Think of all the qualities that make a great trumpeter: a full brassy tone, dazzling runs and immaculate articulation, a range that sends the high notes soaring into the stratosphere, imagination and sensitivity … James has all these and more.’ - Ian Mann, The JazzMann

‘Sansom is certainly an emerging talent.’ - Ian Mann, The JazzMann
