The Jeffrey Hewer Trio and Quartet is a Leeds-based band exploring soundscapes of contemporary jazz. This incisive group of musicians from the city’s thriving jazz scene play mainly original material composed specifically for this line up by guitarist/band leader Jeffrey Hewer.
Their music includes everything from straight ahead burners to more contemplative meditations, with every piece a vehicle for collective and individual improvisations of the band members. Melodies soar over foundational bass-walks and the bustling percussion with Jeffrey's lush guitar chording and sinuous lines tying the music and groove together with influences ranging from classic jazz to more modern soundscapes. Frequently joined by piano, this band exudes creative energy.

Time for some solo guitar courtesy of the wonderful folks at Matt & Phreds. I'll be playing a set of jazz standards and jazz tunes sans accompaniment - and trying my best to play the right notes
