The Simon Spillett Quartet play the music of TUBBY HAYES! Ronnie Scott's Club, Sunday November 1.

(Press release)
Following on from their sell-out performance at Ronnie's in February, The Simon Spillett Quartet returns to Frith Street in November to once more perform the music of the ultimate British jazz legend, Tubby Hayes.
Led by tenor saxophonist Simon Spillett - winner of several accolades for his music, including Top Tenor in the British Jazz Awards, and latterly author of the definitive book on Tubby Hayes (The Long Shadow of The Little Giant), the quartet features pianist John Critchinson, a regular member of the Ronnie Scott group for over fifteen years, bass icon Dave Green, a player whose CV boasts such formidable names as Sonny Rollins and Coleman Hawkins and sui generis drummer Spike Wells, whose international career has seen him working with stellar jazz names including Johnny Griffin and Roland Kirk.
John, Dave and Spike all knew and worked with Tubby Hayes, with Spike a member of Tubby's big band and quartet from 1968 to 1973, lending a distinctly personal edge to this celebration.
The music played by this dynamic quartet will include themes written, arranged and associated with Hayes, including material from albums like The Jazz Couriers in Concert, Tubbs in New York and Mexican Green.
