Tonight @ the Globe. Four In One is now Three In One (and counting!)

(Press release)

Last minute change of line up: on Saturday two members of the band learned they must self-isolate but with typical determination they insisted that ‘the show must go on’. The line up tonight is Will Howard – tenor sax, Elliot Roffe – double bass and Steve Hanley – drums.

Four In One is a Leeds-based group that features some of the UK’s finest Jazz musicians. The band play a mixture of repertoire that draws from the American tradition, paying homage to composers such as Monk and Tristano as well as incorporating original compositions. The group grew out of a weekly jam session at Jamil’s house – four kindred spirits who all share a passion for this music.

Will Howard – tenor saxophone. In the last 10 years he has made a name for himself in the UK as one of the most versatile young improvisers around. “Howard’s timing, sound, everything about him marks him out as a generous talent. Abundant technique, yet subservient to the sound he was pursuing. Howard must be heard” – Bebop Spoken Here.


Steve Hanley – drums. Steve brings a real sense of creativity to his kit playing – an intense player, steeped in the tradition of the American greats such as Paul Motion and Al Foster. You may have come across Steve in the Family Band who recently represented the UK at the 2019 prestigious 12 points Festival in the Bimhuis, Amsterdam.


Jamil Sheriff – piano. Described by The Guardian as “someone who has made a real difference to the vitality of the jazz scene in the North of England”, Jamil Sheriff is the Programme Leader for Jazz at Leeds Conservatoire’. Jamil has been described by The Times as an “excellent Northern pianist who brings together a range of contemporary and urban approaches”.


Sam Quintana – double bass. Sam is one of the musicians who will constantly surprise. Always growing as an artist, Sam is really starting to make a mark on the scene – in demand as both a sideman and also leading his own group ‘Wandering Monster’ – an outlet for his compositions.
