Promoting Young Musicians: The Ben Holder Quartet

Latest in my promo campaign featuring young jazz bands and musicians comes Ben Holder and his Quartet. Ben is a young giant of jazz in more ways than one.

I’ve filmed him with his Quartet on several occasions, including their stunning gigs at Fest Jazz, Brittany, last year. So when the opportunity arose to catch up again with Ben at Olney Jazz Club on 2nd May, wild horses wouldn’t have kept me away.

And wild it was! Or at least “Wild Ben Holder” was – in a constructive way and brilliantly tempered by Malcolm Garrett (piano), Paul Jefferies (drums) and Jez Cook (guitar).

Following is a selection of YouTubes I filmed on the night. Prepare to hold on to your seats!
