A group led by pianist Alex Webb with a front-line of two of the UK's greatest jazz improvisers: tenor saxophonist Denys Baptiste and guitarist Nigel Price. Also performing is singer/songwriter Alice Auer

Quintet Blue is an fascinating collective of musicians who have come together to celebrate the bluesy, swinging Jazz of the 1950s and 60s, with a repertoire of pieces from Wes Montgomery, Kenny Burrell, Ahmad Jamal as well as more recent works from Charlie Haden's Quartet West.

MOBO award winner twice over, Denys Baptiste has been described by Time Magazine as an "icon of British Jazz" with a most distinctive and immediately recognisable sound. Nigel Price is the winner of two British Jazz Awards for best guitarist and currently has five albums to his name. Bandleader Alex Webb is a prolific songwriter, arranger and pianist, whose songs have been recorded by China Moses and liane Carroll, to name just two. Quintet Blue is completed by bassist Michele Montoli and drummer Shaney Forbes of Empirical.

We're very happy to welcome Alice Auer to The Jazz Sanctuary stage. Alice is a rare gem in the Jazz-soul world. She is primarily a vocalist's vocalist. Inspired by the likes of Chet Baker, Nat King Cole and Moonchild's Amber Navran, she creates music that honours both the old and the new jazz Movements. In 2021 Alice released a collaborative EP with multi-instrumentalist and producer Conor Albert called Smile. It received support from the likes of Jamie Cullum, Radio 1,2, CLASH and Justin Bieber to name a few.
