Tomos Williams Quintet - Blue Note and Beyond

The Tomos Williams Quintet will be performing classics from the 1960s, often referred to as the Blue Note Era. Songs that were made famous by such players as Miles Davis, Wayne Shorter, Hank Mobley, Joe Henderson and Horace Silver will come to life in the exquisite surroundings of Ceredigion Museum. Tomos, originally from Aberystwyth, performed at the Museum in November 2018 to a sold out audience with his band 7Steps, and was here back in September with his Welsh jazz/folk outfit Burum. For this concert he has assembled a crack band of many of the best players from the South Wales jazz scene. Expect a night of burning jazz.

Tomos Williams - trumpet, Joe Northwood - tenor sax, Dave Jones - piano, Aeddan Williams - bass, Mark O'Connor - drums
