Huw Bennett Quintet

Event Has Passed

Last Show: Sunday 9 th October 2016

PizzaExpress Jazz Club (Soho)

The bassist behind West-African project Susso (Soundway Records) and electronic jazz outfit Saltwater Samurai, Huw Bennett has brought together some of London's most exciting young musicians for his new collective. In the short time they have been performing together, HBQ have enjoyed performances at The Jazz Cafe, Jazz: Refeshed and opened up for the iconic Eric Lau. Coming together to reinterpret the jazz and afrobeat-inspired sounds that they know and love, their adaptable nature is heard throughout the original music they've been recording over the past few months. Expect the quintet to navigate through rhythmic passages and heavy beats to get people moving to something beautiful, intense, and totally unexpected.
