Enter the sound-world of the Tom Green Septet, merging contemporary chamber jazz tunes with rich harmony, propulsive grooves and memorable melodies.
Winner of the Dankworth Prize for Jazz Composition, Tom Green is a trombonist, composer and arranger whose elegant and lively original compositions for the Septet’s debut album Skyline attracted critical acclaim on its release in February 2015.
Formed in November 2012, the Septet brings together seven in-demand young musicians who are all prize-winning bandleaders, composers and performers in their own right. They use the unique range of textures available to the seven-piece ensemble to create a warm and distinct sound.
