Two of the UK’s most talented young jazz musicians are set to appear at The Five Bells, fresh from a week long residency at Ronnie Scott’s.

Phil Robson and Paul Booth will perform at the venue on Thursday, November 12 starting at 8.15pm.

Guitarist Phil Robson is internationally regarded as a highly versatile and creative musician who appears in a wide range of diverse settings.

A renowned bandleader and composer, he is co-leader of the cult band Partisans and has performed at major jazz festivals and venues throughout Europe and the USA.

Their latest recording, ‘Swamp’, was chosen as the 2015 Parliamentary Jazz Awards “CD of the Year”. He has also worked with some of the leading figures on the international jazz scene, including Billy Hart, Dave Liebman, Kenny Wheeler and John Taylor and is a member of the BBC Big Band.

Having released four solo albums to date, Paul Booth has firmly established himself as an in-demand solo artist, as well as a ‘first call’ sideman for many big names in both jazz and popular music worlds.

The band recently completed a successful week’s residency at Ronnie Scott’s, opposite drum legend Billy Cobham.

Tickets are £12 for adults and £3 for under 18s and full time students.
