ST AUSTELL Bay Jazz at The Bosun's, Charlestown, plays host to the Tim Thornton Quartet on Wednesday, September 3, at 8pm.
Bassist Thornton is a regular performer on the British jazz scene and graduate of Birmingham Conservatoire. Tim won the 2013 British Jazz Award in the rising star category after releasing and touring his debut album New Kid, performing a mixture of original music and arrangements.
His quartet visited St Austell on that tour and the concert was one of the highlights of the season, providing an evening of brilliant playing, strong melodies and accessible new music.
He is a regular host of the Late Late Show at Ronnie Scott's with his Quartet featuring Grant Windsor, James Gardiner-Bateman and Chris Draper and a regular member of Ronnie Scott's Allstars led by James Pearson. Tim also performs and has recorded with many different groups including the Steve Fishwick Quintet, Gilad Atzmon Quartet, Brandon Allen Quartet, Rob Barron Trio/Quartet, Jay Phelps Quartet/Sextet/Big Band, Dave O'Higgins Quartet, Ivo Neame Quintet, James Torme Quintet, Sian Evans Group, Heidi Vogel Quartet, Noemi Nuti Quintet (UK/Italy), Joe Pisto Quartet (Italy), and the Julian Bliss Septet.
