“We are lucky enough to have STEVE FISHWICK back at The Ent Shed, Bedford, on Thursday 14th May. 

“Steve is widely considered to be one of the best jazz trumpet players to come from the UK and is rapidly gaining a global reputation thanks to his flawless technique, and his beautifully flowing, harmonically rich improvisations. He is one of an increasing number of trumpeters who have been heavily influenced by the melodic approach of the late great Kenny Dorham, a figure often overlooked in the pantheon of Jazz Trumpet Legends. As well as “K.D.”, Steve cites Art Farmer, Miles Davis and Woody Shaw among his favourite players, but his style is very much his own. Trumpet great Wynton Marsalis recently said about him “Steve has his own style. He plays from the bottom to the top of the horn whilst maintaining the integrity of the chords. I can’t think of another trumpet player that can do what he does.”

“Steve is bringing his latest solo project to Jazz@The Ent Shed this time around – a quintet with a somewhat unusual instrumentation. It features his brother Matt Fishwick, who recently returned to the UK after living in New York for 5 years, Tim Thornton on Double Bass, Ross Stanley on piano and Tom Cawley on Fender Rhodes. A new album, “The Outer Periphery”, was released last year. Supporting Steve is a young trumpeter called Alex Astbury who is currently residing in Birmingham while studying in his third year at the Birmingham Conservatoire. He will be bringing a quintet full of his peers at the renowned music college.
