Joe is current Scottish Young Jazz Musician of the Year, and this new group features his original music. Heavy riffs, soaring guitar, loads of energy and some really nice tunes too. With Gus Stirrat on bass and Graham Costello on drums.
Playing the music of the hard swinging saxophonist Dexter Gordon - big fun!
Another nice chance to play in a quartet setting, this time with a couple of new faces! Michael Butcher on sax, Conor Murray on bass and Greg Irons on drums. We’ll play some favourite tunes of mine for about an hour, then it’ll be time for Hypnotic Brass Ensemble.
I've played with Colin in various formats over the years, but never in the Quintet - so very much looking forward to this one.
Playing some solo piano at the RSPB Centre alongside Fergus's superb trio.
5 musicians on the scene play together for the first time - or that's the idea anyway! No rehearsal, no set list, so a pretty informal "jam" type vibe, usually good fun!
Playing some of Joe's music for a live broadcast from the Blue Tent at the Edinburgh International Festival for BBC3's Jazz Now, with Mario Caribe on bass and Alan Cosker on drums.
Playing a nice mixture of straight ahead and more contemporary jazz with some of the young cats coming up on the Scottish jazz scene.
We are playing on the Sunday morning at the notorious Boomtown festival near Winchester.
Playing Japanese traditional/jazz crossover with multi instrumentalist, composer and arranger Zac Zinger.
Back after popular demand! An all-star line up led by Richard Ingham, and featuring Colin Steele on trumpet, recreates the legendary Miles Davis/Gil Evans record.
Super fun, groovy band led by Scottish Young Jazz Musician of the Year David Bowden. Jazz with strong West-African and South American influences.

Luca is being featured in a programme called “The New Wave of Scottish Jazz”. We will be playing a set, as will Fergus McCreadie Trio and Mark Hendry Octet - a great chance to see some of Scotland’s most exciting young musicians and to see me being the oldest person on stage…
We are playing for the opening night of the Festival Club at Edinburgh Jazz Festival. Looking forward to my first gig with the band in a while!
