FRIDAY 29th APRIL 2022
DENYS BAPTISTE (saxophone)
3 courses £54.00 2 courses £49.00 cover charge £27.00
Londoner Denys Baptiste makes a welcome first visit to the Jazz Café. Now firmly established on the capitol’s jazz scene, Denys has studied under Jean Toussant at the Guildhall School of Music and was mentored by Gary Crosby of the Jazz Warriors. He is a versatile musician and, although steeped in the jazz tradition, he incorporates ideas from other musical forms, producing a repertoire which is contemporary, multi-layered and highly accessible. He has recorded sparingly over his 25-year career but each recording has been an emphatic statement such the Martin Luther King themed “Let Freedom Ring” and his re-interpretations of late period Coltrane recordings “Late Trane”.
Denys Baptiste will be performing with The Andy Urquhart Quartet
