Bebop Spoken There

Jasper Høiby: "These days everybody thinks they know something about everything, and there are so many opinions being aired all over the place that aren't fully formed because there are so many platforms to say anything you want to when you feel like it." - (Jazzwise June 2020)

Dave Rempis:Ten years from now, I can see musicians streaming concerts in real time and charging a minimal amount for people to watch.” - (DownBeat September 2013)

Calling all bassmen

Until recently relocating to New York, Phil Donkin has been one of the most in demand up and coming young bass players on the European scene today. He has performed and recorded with some the most cutting edge musicians in the world. Since graduating from the Guildhall school of music in London some years ago, Phil has worked with many great UK musicians such as Kenny Wheeler, Julian Arguelles, Tim Garland, Stan Sulzmann and Gwilym Simcock to name a few. In more recent years Phil's reputation has spread beyond the UK and he has toured Europe with people such as Kurt Rosenwinkel, Marc Copland, Bill Stewart, Greg Osby, Ari Hoenig, Jonathan Kreisberg, Terrell Stafford, David Binney, Tyshawn Sorey, Nils Wogram's Root 70 and many others. Phil has also performed with some jazz legends such as Quincy Jones, Roger Kellaway, Eddie Henderson, and John Abercrombie.
Phillip Donkin is in Sunderland until Nov 29 visiting family. He is available for one to one tuition or workshops. Interested parties please contact him on 07706 006 795.
