Dominic Howles Quintet
Hard bop style quintet led by bassist and composer Dominic Howles and featuring Steve Fishwick (trumpet, flugel), Dave O’higgins (tenor sax), Matt Fishwick (drums) and either Ross Stanley or Nick Tomalin at the piano. The album “Along Came Benny”, inspired by saxophonist and composer Benny Golson, released on the Bopcentric Music label in 2019.
"Howles’ writing is very much in the hard bop tradition, but his original pieces are all highly effective and his jazz arrangements of outside ‘pop’ material are both intriguing and inventive. "
