THE BRANDON ALLEN QUARTET
Brandon Allen – Saxophone
Tim Lapthorn – Piano
Jeremy Brown – Bass
Chris Higginbottom - Drums
The Brandon Allen Quartet is a new group that performs contemporary arrangements of
standard repertoire, jazz classics (Coltrane, Shorter, Henderson, Rollins, Mobley) and original compositions.
The longstanding musical partnership of saxophonist Brandon Allen and pianist Tim Lapthorn is once again at the core of this project.
The addition of Jeremy Brown (bass) and Chris Higginbottom (drums) has proved to be a potent mix, the group creating an explosive blend of melodic improvisation, heavy swing and emotional freedom and spontaneity.
The group repertoire is also inspired by swing, bebop, latin music, contemporary jazz and above all else, the experience of life right now…
'Rock-solid and exciting performances capturing the essence of the classic jazz quartet at its finest.'
