18th September: Jon Desbruslais Quintet

Another two set gig this week, with a fantastic band of Guildhall graduates making their mark on the London scene. The quintet formed in 2013, to play the compositions of bandleader and drummer Jon. His style of writing and form of improvising is influenced by Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers, Brian Blade Fellowship, Wayne Shorter Quartet, Terence Blanchard and Chucho Valdes. The music focuses on lyrical melodies, warm and descriptive harmonies and strong rhythms.

Jon Desbruslais – drums
Tommy Andrews – alto sax
Henry Spencer – trumpet
Dougie Freeman – keys
Flo Moore – bass


Come down to Long White Cloud for a great night of original music!
