"Harry plays with soul, energy, versatility and most importantly – heart. He has an assured future in the business”

Rodney Jones, Juilliard

This year He brings to the LJF four rising young stars at the top of their game. 

The Harry Bolt Quintet is constantly evolving and tonight features the mellifluous melodies of Guitarist Ant Law, regularly-in-demand renowned Saxophonist Duncan Eagles, once-in-a-generation Bassist Conor Chaplin and the remarkable skills of leading UK Drummer, Corrie Dick.

The Quintet finds a voice for Harry’s ever-growing portfolio of arrangements and stand-out original compositions. 

Mentored by one of the UK’s most highly regarded pianists of all time, John Taylor

Harry’s accomplished style ranges from traditional to contemporary modern, playing from the heart with versatility, passion and also a subtle, soulful flair.  

Outside of performing, Harry is a successful professional educator, with his own Jazz Piano Academy formed in 2018. 

As he often tells his students, “if you surprise yourself, you surprise your audience”.  Harry’s return to Pizza Express will be no exception – expect the unexpected!
