Kevin Fitzsimmons Quartet Kevin Fitzsimmons Quartet

Charismatic jazz singer/songwriter Kevin Fitzsimmons is one of the most individual male jazz voices to emerge on the UK jazz scene recently and together with his band, they blend West Coast cool, hard swinging standards and blues-tinged ballads, all in the space of a relentlessly entertaining set. He delivers a sassy new take on classic songs by the likes of Mercer, Strayhorn, Jobim, Legrand, Ellington and Porter, alongside new jazz translations of anthems from the likes of The Beatles, Sam Cooke and Paul Weller. Completing the quartet are Leon Greening on piano, Tim Thornton on double bass and Lloyd Haines on drums.
