Another chance to enjoy Freddie Gavita’s quartet whose 2017 Sheffield Jazz gig at Crookes was so impressive. Rising star Freddie, who won the British Jazz Award for Best Trumpeter of 2017, is establishing a reputation as one of the top trumpeters on the UK jazz scene. Expect scintillating grooves, heartfelt ballads and some serious swing from a line-up of top players which again features Freddie’s long-time collaborator, the award-winning keyboard player Tom Cawley.
