Freddie Gavita Quartet

Freddie Gavita Quartet

Freddie Gavita is increasingly making a name for himself on the UK jazz scene as a trumpeter, composer, arranger and teacher. In many cases you might not have noticed him when he has performed with Will Young, Daniel Beddinglfield, Marti Pellow, Andrea Corr, Noah and the Whale, Mick Hucknall, Curtis Stigers, or Georgie Fame, but his jazz credentials are more noticeable since Freddie Gavita he started winning awards in 2008. Recently winner of the British Jazz Awards “Best Trumpet of 2017,” Freddie has cemented his place as a leading light on the British Jazz scene. With the release of his debut album “Transient” in April 2017, his star is certainly on the rise.
He is a member of the Ronnie Scott’s Club Quintet and jazz-rock outfit Fletch’s Brew as well as being a band leader in his own right. A fearless improviser, “he solos with fluent authority, his tone ranging from the warmly conversational to the eloquently strident.”
“He has a soft, non-brassy tone that is so attractive that, at first, you scarcely notice the range, articulation and virtuosity of his playing. Until, that is, some impossibly long and ingenious phrase makes the point.” Guardian review of Transient
