Byron Wallen Quintet
A wonderful trumpet player with an easy and fluent style, Byron is widely recognised as a seminal figure in British jazz. A creative force in the UK since the early 90s, Byron’s early career included work with Courtney Pine, Jean Toussaint and Cleveland Watkiss. By the late 90s his work was receiving worldwide attention and he could be heard with artists such as Ronnie Laws, Chaka Khan, David Murray, Andrew Hill, Wynton Marsalis, Freddie Hubbard and George Benson.
As a composer Byron’s output has been equally eclectic, with his soaring Jazz trumpet featured on a series of self-penned albums including the MOBO nominated “Earth Roots” through film music to dance and commissions for the South Bank.
