THE Nat Steele Quartet, featuring some of the finest names in the UK, play Herts Jazz Club this Sunday.
Since Nat’s recent arrival on the scene, he has quickly gained a reputation as a cutting-edge virtuoso on his instrument. Following in the footsteps of Milt Jackson, Victor Feldman and Cal Tjader, his playing is lyrical and melodic with a focus on a hard driving swing.
The quartet features Nat on vibes, Leon Greening on piano, Mark Taylor on drums and brother Luke Steele on double bass.
Their repertoire includes Cedar Walton and Mike LeDonne tunes with a fair sprinkling of the quartet’s own arrangements of standards and blues.
The club meets at Campus West, Welwyn Garden City, and tickets are £5 for students and under-21s, £11 in advance from http://www.hawthornetheatre.co.uk/whatsonstage.html or £13 on the door.
