About the band

A new departure for trumpet and tenor duo Jamie Brownfield and Liam Byrne. The once bebop purists have now turned their attentions to earlier jazz styles taking inspiration from Bix and Tram rather than Bird and Dizzy. Their new band, the Hot six, play the kind of jazz that really swings and doesn’t give you a headache. Featuring a rhythm section including such luminaries as Tom Kincaid, Andy Hulme, Jim Swinnerton and Jack Cotterill, they play classic jazz, as in everything from New Orleans through the tin pan alley classics, the swing era, and mainstream jazz recalling the classic small groups of the 1930′s.

 

Jamie has a prodigiously broad style running the gamut of jazz trumpet while Liam has a growing reputation as a torchbearer of the jazz tenor saxophone tradition, inspired by the likes of Lester Young and Coleman Hawkins. Tom is one of the UK’s foremost jazz pianists with an infectious style in the mould of Errol Garner and Oscar Peterson, and Andy’s playing reflects the roots of jazz guitar, echoing Charlie Christian and Freddy Green. The band is completed by Jim and Jack’s energetic rhythm playing.​​​​​

    The band  was conceived in 2009 by trumpeter, Jamie Brownfield and saxophonist, Liam Byrne, both of whom are based in North Wales. Embracing the trumpet and tenor tradition of 1950′s bebop, the group’s repertoire has expanded considerably over the past few years to incorporate much earlier forms of jazz, reflecting the ever-expanding influences that inform it’s style. By placing an emphasis on a high standard of musicianship and a challenging repertoire, and staying true to their original jazz influences, these five musicians succeed in achieving a broad appeal with young and old alike, breaking down the boundaries that traditionally exist between the respective jazz genres.
