Eclectic Jazz: A Night with Vince Dunn at Jazz on The Pantiles, Tunbridge Wells, Kent
Jazz on The Pantiles: Vince Dunn Quartet
In the heart of Tunbridge Wells, Thursday nights in the summer months come alive with the sounds of Jazz on The Pantiles. I went to photograph The Vince Dunn Quartet with world-renowned drummer Vince Dunn along with Mark Armstrong on the trumpet,
Chris Jerome on piano and Miles Danso on bass.
The Vince Dunn Quartet: A Symphony of Talent and Passion
For the last 30 years Vince has been performing with a wide and eclectic mix of artists from The Vince Dunn Orchestra, The Aim, Pharrell Williams, Leon Ware, Madonna, Courtney Pine, Kylie Minogue, Loose Ends, The Funk Masters, Cleo Laine, Osibisa, to name just a few. When he's not busy performing, he teaches the drum to others.
Trumpeter, composer, arranger and jazz professor
Mark Armstrong is a trumpeter, composer, arranger and Jazz Professor at the Royal College of Music and Musical Director of the National Youth Jazz Orchestra. He also teaches composing and and arranging at the London Centre of Contemporary Music and plays regularly with the Ronnie Scott's Jazz Orchestra and am an alumni of Clark Tracey's Quintet.
Chris Jerome is a dynamic and versatile keyboard player/pianist/composer who has performed and recorded extensively with a multitude of ground-breaking artists, including Courtney Pine, Beverley Knight, Jamelia and Sister Sledge. He's also released an album, Long Distance.
Just check out #milesdansoonbass, and you'll find that this amazing (and stylish and dapper) double bass player doesn't seem to ever post on social media, but he's played all over the world, with countless bands and musicians, including in New Orleans, home of Jazz, and also also performed and recorded with Courtney Pine.
