Saxophonist Simon Spillett and his quartet play Herts Jazz Club this Sunday.

Winner of the 2011 British Jazz Award for tenor saxophone, Simon is recognised as one of the most distinctive saxophonists on the current UK jazz scene, appearing at venues such as Ronnie Scott’s Club and at major jazz festivals from Birmingham to Brecon.
