Saxophonist Sulzmann and pianist Iles are two of the most highly regarded musicians and composers in the UK. This, combined with their long standing musical friendship, respect and collaboration of over 20 years promises a truly inspiring evening.
Each holds the other in the highest regard and their object is ‘…to play tunes that we like, and, probably, a couple that we have written ourselves
‘Two musicians at the top of their game…had the audience captivated’ Mike Gordan, Director Scarborough Jazz Festival
Stan’s long career has taken in almost every kind of session work. Recently he has chosen to do what he loves best, from writing for, and leading his magnificent Neon Jazz Orchestra, to augmenting Jim Mullen’s driving Organ Trio: to say nothing of his key composition classes at The Royal Academy of Music.
Best Pianist in the 2017 British Jazz Awards Nikki Iles is simply one of our most outstanding pianists, one of the few to be compared to the late John Taylor. A prolific composer with numerous commissions, as well as great performer she is also a widely respected teacher and key member of The Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music.
This will be an evening to savour – like good Burgundy

‘Iles displayed the rhythmic surprises, shape shifting phrases, playful dialogue with a mix of ruggedness and reflection that make her comparable with the great John Taylor.’ The Guardian (John Fordham)
‘But a shining light of the whole attractive enterprise is the presence of Stan Sulzmann, who seems to sound more personal and hauntingly moving than ever.’ John Fordham, Jazz UK
