Scat 23 Presents the outstanding Christos Stylianides and his Quintet. Currently based in Birmingham, Scottish trumpet player Christos Stylianides’ Quintet is a group which focuses on the contemporary while still being able to draw from the tradition of jazz. Taking inspiration from a range of different artists across many genres, the outfit merges elements of contemporary classical music, free improvisation, folk music, post rock and more. With an emphasis on original music, the band drifts between extremes of bombastic high energy improvisation and subtler moments of vulnerability, while leaving space for each members individual voice to come through and shape the music. LINE UP - Christos Stylianides - Trumpet/Compositions Josh Schofield - Alto Olly Chalk - Piano Sam Ingvorsen - Bass Gwilym Jones - Drums
