Colin Steele Quartet
Quartet led by Edinburgh based trumpeter Colin Steele and featuring Dave Milligan (piano), Calum Gourlay (double bass) and Alyn Cosker (drums). Album “Diving For Pearls” (Marina Records, July 2017) features jazz interpretations (arranged by Milligan) of songs written by David Scott for the Glasgow pop/rock band The Pearlfishers.
"Steele has retained a highly individual and readily identifiable instrumental sound and he immediately claims these melodies as his own. "
