    Jazz at the Speakeasy

    Join saxophonist Geoff Simpkins for an evening of jazz with Chris Coull (trumpet) Tim Wells (organ) and Angus Bishops (drums). Plus other guests too. Great drinks and highly recommended Thai food in this stylish jazz-club venue. Geoff has played at concerts, clubs and festivals in all parts of the U.K. and has worked abroad extensively in Europe, Scandinavia, West Africa, Bahrein, Dubai, and the Far East.
    Recordings include albums with his own quartet, two L.P’s with Danny Moss (which were voted among the top records of the year by Jazz Journal), albums with Billy Butterfield and Yank Lawson, and most recently with Dave Cliff including the much praised C.D’s ‘The music of Tadd Dameron’ released in 1997 and the marvellous duo and quartet recording of the previous year – ‘Sipping at Bells ‘.
    Geoff leads his own quartet and works as often as possible with Dave Cliff in a variety of settings from duo to quintet, and is increasingly in demand as a guest at jazz clubs and festivals throughout the U.K. He often works with American musicians who are visiting this country and over the years has played with such luminaries as Art Farmer, Bobby Shew, Al Cohn, Tal Farlow, Slide Hampton, Warren Vache, Al Grey, Kenny Davern, Bill Berry, Al Casey, Howard Alden, Ruby Braff, Bill Coleman and Conte Candoli.
