Jamie Brownfield Quartet

“A sickeningly talented trumpet player and bandleader Jamie has toured far and wide in his 26 years and has gained for himself an entirely justified reputation for playing great jazz with a flawless technique and wonderful burnished tone delivered with an edge of the seat excitement that mas made him a favourite of jazz audiences all over the UK, Europe and the US”

“Jamie – we believe – is one of the finest young trumpet players in Europe today. His mastery of the instrument is self evident, a superb tone, great ‘language’ and he’s one very impressive figure out front with any ensemble. Cutting his teeth in a silver band as a youngster and styling through his classical grades, Jamie took to jazz like the proverbial duck to musical water and he is featured at nearly all of the jazz festivals and venues throughout UK and Europe either with his own very capable quartet or as a guest soloist"
