After sensational sold-out concerts at Dean Street in 2019 and 2021, it’s a welcome return, in March 2023, for this concert by the Tom Green Septet, one of the most successful band of young British musicians, playing original, inventive and highly creative jazz, featuring compositions by their leader on trombone, Tom Green
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 Bass in the 2019 EFG London Jazz Festival at St Johns Smith Square
They made a most welcome return to Dean Street for the sold-out new album launch concert in 2021 of their second album “Tipping Point” described as “imaginative and ingenious ****” - Observer
Here’s the band with one of Tom’s compositions “Jack O’Lantern"
So it’s with no hesitation we welcome the return to Dean Street for Tom Green, on trombone, leading his band of talented young musicians on trumpet, alto & tenor saxophones, piano, double bass and drums. This performance re-affirms that the present, and indeed future of jazz is both alive and well in the hands of a new generation of top musicians and will delight and reward music lovers of all generations.
