Freddie Gavita Quartet
Freddie Gavita

“He solos with fluent authority, his tone ranging from the warmly conversational to the eloquently strident.”

Freddie Gavita ~ Trumpet, Tom Cawley ~ Piano, Calum Gourlay ~ Bass, Josh Blackmore ~ Drums

Freddie Gavita is a young trumpet player at the top of his game. Having won the British Jazz Award for best trumpeter of 2017, he is one of the most in-demand and versatile trumpet players in Britain today. Whether playing searing trumpet or delivering heartfelt ballads, he is guaranteed to wow any audience. He is a regular visitor to Fleece Jazz as a member of Fletch's Brew. Freddie has also played with, among others, Peter Erskine, Joe Locke, Jon Hendricks, Kenny Wheeler, Stan Sulzmann, Tim Garland, Gregory Porter and Dionne Warwick.

Pianist and composer Tom Cawley has played all over the world and led bands in residencies at the Blue Note in New York and Ronnie Scott’s. Formerly the pianist with genre-bending iconoclasts Acoustic Ladyland and leader of his much-acclaimed group Curios. Tom’s piano-playing betrays many influences: Phineas Newborn, Brad Mehldau and all points in between.

London-based double bassist and composer Calum Gourlay is known for his deep warm tone, controlled execution as both a supporter and improviser, and rock-solid time and pulse. He has become a mainstay on the London scene.

Josh Blackmore was an incipient member of the piano trio ‘Curios’ with Tom Cawley; he co-founded Troyka with Chris Montague and Kit Downes. He has been described as “cerebral without being self-conscious, playful without seeming glib, simply bursting with intelligence and wit.” (Jazzwise)

“A talented trumpet prodigy” - John Walters, The Guardian
