Well known as a performer, educator and composer, Simon Purcell has put together a new group from the cream of British jazz performers who came to prominence in the 1980s. While perhaps best known as head of jazz at Trinity College of Music, Simon’s 2014 debut album comes after a long career at the top flight as a jazz performer and has met universal acclaim. The remainder of the group are all highly respected musicians, composers and educators in their own right and with the addition of top vocalist Liane Carroll, can lay claim to being six of the most scintillating performers in the UK today.
