Following the successful launch of their first album “Skyline” in 2016, the Tom Green Septet enhanced their standing as a new youthful force in the jazz world with a much talked about concert at London’s Wigmore Hall.
The original writing and compelling ensemble arrangements confirmed them as a unique group of talented musicians which led to their widely acclaimed sell out concert, in the 2018 EFG London Jazz Festival.
The Tom Green Septet made their Pizza Express Jazz Club debut, in another sold out concert in the Spring of 2019 playing original compositions and new arrangements, featuring intricate emotive ensemble playing together with towering individual improvisations.
Tom’s orchestration skills were shown to the fore as band manager of the Royal Academy Of Music Alumni All Stars 22- piece orchestra playing the original Gil Evans arrangements of George Gershwin’s Porgy and Bess in the 2019 EFG London Jazz Festival at St Johns Smith Square
Their most welcome return to Dean Street will be the first concert since the launch of their second album “Tipping Point” described as “imaginative and ingenious ****” - Observer
