Last Show: Monday 10 th October 2022

PizzaExpress Jazz Club (Soho)

For this special performance, multi-award-winning trumpeter, composer and bandleader Henry Spencer brings his band Juncture, following recent international touring which saw sold out performances, TV & radio broadcasts and growing audiences. Having worked with multi-GRAMMY Award winning Dave Darlington in New York (Miles Davis, Prince, Herbie Hancock, Michael Jackson) and US/UK record label Whirlwind Recordings, Henry Spencer received critical acclaim across Europe. Astonishing dynamic variety, compositional flair and a measured vigour mark out this fast-rising star of the London scene and his multi-award-winning and close-knit band: emotive and evocative music that touches jazz, rock and minimalism and makes for an energising sound of its own. Having worked with two Platinum-selling producers (Kate Bush, Paul McCartney, John Lenon, Richard Ashcroft) and a London Symphony Orchestra composer for his latest release, ‘The Survivor and The Descendant’, Henry continues these collaborations for his new album.

About Henry Spencer’s Music

Touching jazz, rock and minimalism, the music’s “astonishing dynamic variety” (Manchester Jazz Festival) combines Henry’s “spectacular technique” (The Guardian), intense, raw energy and evocative outlets, with moments of intimate, heart-felt, emotionally-led, lyrical melodies - almost as if there were words being sung. 

Henry’s unusual and personal approach gives the music its rare, impactful strength; emotionally drawing in as well as exhilarating the listener. Henry is driven to write and perform to deal with personal experience - much like a singer songwriter.
