Autumn-Winter Season 2017 - 16th December
Dave Newton - Jon Taylor Quartet
Growing up in Renfrewshire, Scotland, Newton had a musical upbringing with the piano trio sound of Peterson, Tatum or Garner an ever-present feature in the Newton household. After graduating from Leeds College of Music in 1979 David Newton freelanced around Yorkshire and eventually became a resident musician at the Stephen Joseph Theatre in Scarborough for two and a half years. A move to Edinburgh followed where theatre work using local musicians quickly led to an established position on the Scottish jazz scene but after some four years there, his old roommate from college, Alan Barnes, persuaded him to move to London where he rapidly became a much sought after pianist teaming up with Barnes, guitarist Martin Taylor and saxophonist Don Weller.
Saxophonist Jon Taylor became during his time at The Leeds College of Music and after graduation a stalwart of the Yorkshire jazz scene and beyond.
A multi-instrumentalist he possesses the rare quality of combining musical performance with an incisive sense of humour. Comfortable within many different genres Jon has over the years attracted and continues to attract appreciative and loyal admirers.
