The Jon Crespo Quartet is an electric mix of musicians with vast years of experience and talent. From composers, touring musicians and studio session playing, this quartet combines to take jazz to another level.
They have the ability to take a standard song from the Great American Song Book and make it fresh while still staying true to the composition – and in another turn take a classic song from the 60s and modernise it to bring in some funk and soul that exudes from the players.
The Quartet is made up of Greg Evans on drums – a seasoned veteran in the Cardiff and UK scene both live and studio; Ashley Long on bass – a very talented multi-instrumentalist and composer who is known throughout the UK and Europe with international touring experience; Dave Jones on piano – a composer and performer and lecturer.
Jon Crespo completes the Quartet on trumpet. Originating from Canada, Jon has international touring experience by way of backing some some of the biggest artists in the pop and rock genres.
With a residency in Cafe Jazz Cardiff, this quartet is a show not to be missed.
