Jam Session feat. Andy Davies

We are delighted to announce that Highams Park Jazz Club will be hosting one of London’s greatest and well-known trumpeters, Andy Davies, as the featured artist at our upcoming jam session. Andy has been a prominent figure in the London jazz scene, renowned for his exceptional talent and having hosted the famous Ronnie Scott’s jam sessions on Wednesday nights for an impressive 12 years.

For those who have not had the opportunity to watch, listen, or share the stage with this incredible trumpeter, this is a rare chance in Highams Park to experience the magic of performing alongside Andy. For those who may not have attended the Ronnie Scott’s jam sessions, we are bringing the essence of Ronnie Scott’s to Highams Park just for you.

Secure your seat by purchasing tickets for £10, and for the musicians sharing the stage with us, tickets are available at a special rate of £5. Please note that due to limited time and seating, we can only accommodate 10 jammers on a first-come, first-served basis.

Andy Davies is a Welsh jazz trumpeter with an impressive musical journey. At the London Jazz Festival in 2007, he portrayed the role of Chet Baker in the play “Speedball.”

Dave Gelly of The Observer describes Andy Davies as having a “lovely trumpet sound,” which blossoms in the intimate acoustic setting of a small club. Beyond his musical talents, Andy also serves as a continuity announcer on digital television channels such as 5*, Cartoon Network, and ITV.

An award-winning British trumpeter, composer, and writer, Andy Davies leads his own band, the Andy Davies Quartet, currently the resident band at the renowned Ronnie Scott’s Wednesday night jam session.

Andy’s latest album, “Rise Of The Spidermonkey,” is an explosion of catchy originals and reworked jazz classics, showcasing his savage bebop skills and world-class mastery of the trumpet. Join us for a night of extraordinary jazz with Andy Davies at Highams Park Jazz Club!
