Zeffirellis, Ambleside, Cumbria – The Chris Coull Quartet

    Date: Saturday, August 24, 2024
    Time: 8:00 PM - 10:30 PM

    As part of my Northern tour in August this year I will be performing with my old buddies at The Ambleside Cinema. Here;s the blurb for their website!

    Chris is joined in the quartet by father and son duo Rob and Joe Steels on Bass and Guitar, and by Jack Davies on drums.

    His recordings have included 2011 “Blues On the Corniche” arranged with full string section. 2018 “Jazz from the Sands” – a sumptuous small group CD of the great American song book. More recently Chris collaborated with Danish vocalist Sara Oschlag for a quintet recording “Just One Of Those Things”

    “With this recording , Sara Oschlag confirms her position in the very front rank of contemporary jazz vocalists. Chris Coull contributes inspired and tasteful solos throughout and the rhythm section, led by the superb Mark Edwards, is an absolute delight. The result is a charming, beautifully arranged album of unhackneyed material with everyone at the top of their game.” – Alan Barnes

    “Moody and sophisticated, ‘Blues on the Corniche’ is an ambitious, highly skilled album that captures the diverse richness from Chris Coull.”– Grammy award winner Jason Olaine (Jazz at the Lincoln Centre, New York)

    “Great sound, and sweet lines, Chris has got the jazz language down!” Dominick Farinacci (winner of ITG International Jazz Trumpet Competition and 2 gold discs from Swing Journal Magazine)
