Xhosa Cole Quartet
Chordless quartet led by Birmingham based saxophonist and flautist Xhosa Cole and featuring Jay Phelps (trumpet), James Owston (double bass) and Jim Bashford (drums).
"As an ensemble the quartet played with passion, energy and consummate skill, and their shared love of their chosen source material, and of the jazz genre in general, shone like a beacon throughout."
""The band sparkled with the remarkable interplay between the respective musicians". Guest contributor Trevor Bannister enjoys the music of the Xhosa Cole Quartet as they continue their UK tour."
