Roger Beaujolais Quartet
British quartet led by vibraphonist and composer Roger Beaujolais. Also featuring Robin Aspland (piano), Simon Thorpe (double bass) and Winston Clifford (drums). Album “Mind The Gap” released in 2013 on the leader’s own Stay Tuned record label. Follow up “Sunset” released June 2017.
"“Mind The Gap” finds Beaujolais continuing to refine his craft on a swinging, unpretentious album full of fluent solos and all round good playing."
"A very classy piece of work that will help to consolidate Beaujolaisâ€™ reputation as one of the best loved musicians on the UK jazz scene."
