Henry Spencer and Juncture is a multi-award winning fresh and exciting quintet performing original compositions from the pen of leader/trumpet player Henry Spencer. Made with the collaboration of Multi-Grammy Award Winner, Dave Darlington (Miles Davis, Herbie Hancock, Prince, Michael Jackson) in New York, Henry Spencer is launching his debut album, 'The Reasons Don't Change'. Tonight the band is also joined by the strings of the Guastalla Quartet as featured on the album.
Drawing on influences from jazz, rock and minimalism, the group creates an achingly contemporary sound world with a focus on emotional and creative expression. Having met whilst studying at the Guildhall School of Music, the band draws upon years of playing together, resulting in a deep musical understanding and interaction between the musicians. This musical empathy, along with Henry’s fresh compositional approach led them to winning the Best Newcomer Award at the Marlborough Jazz Festival following their debut performance in 2011 and the Emerging Excellence Award 2014.
