The Quentin Collins Quartet

Quentin hosts a regular late night residency at London’s prestigious Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club with his new band, The Quentin Collins Quartet. Given the immediate success of the musical offering, the band will be recording an album on the Ubuntu Music record label late this year and touring in 2018.

The Quentin Collins Quartet is where Quentin highlights his formidable, soulful and original compositions alongside his uncanny ability to interpret lesser played classic material from the jazz canon.
