current member of NYJO. Tom formed his Quintet when he was studying at
The Royal Academy of Music, to showcase his growing catalogue of
original compositions. The Quintet has performed at major venues and
festivals including Ronnie Scotts, The 606 club, The Vortex and The Bear
Club.

Influences on Tom’s playing include Dexter Gordon, John Coltrane, Wayne
Shorter, Mike Brecker, Eddie Harris and influences on Tom’s compositions

the album have been played on Jazz FM many times, as well as on The Jazz
Report, TNGC Radio, Sennhesier Sunday Jazz Session and Radio 3’s ‘Jazz
Now’ show accompanying an interview with Tom.
