Jazz @ Green Note presents… BEN LEE QUINTET + CHRIS WHITER QUINTET
An emerging talent on the jazz scene, CHRIS WHITER has already been listed as ‘one to look out for’ in Jazzwise magazine. Chris’s layering of instrumental textures and rhythmic patterns has become a trademark of his compositions, with works being featured at the BBC Proms and Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club. He has performed at top UK venues and international jazz festivals (Montreux, Vienne, North Sea), and in 2014 he won a place on the Metropole Orchestra Arrangers’ Workshop, working with renowned composer Vince Mendoza, and Grammy award winning vocalist Gregory Porter.
‘Whiter and Sam miles are a tight saxophone duo, harmonizing on intricate melody lines, then splitting apart to go on individual journeys’ – Phil Freeman (The Wire, Jazziz)
‘A hot prospect’ – John Fordham (The Guardian)
