"Straight-ahead, high energy jazz is his line and he does it with aplomb" - The Guardian

In a career stretching over twenty-five years, multi-award-winning tenor saxophonist, Simon Spillett, has cultivated a unique persona within British jazz.

Leading both his own quartet and big band, and inspired by the classic Brit-bop of the 1950s and 1960s, his is a powerfully passionate style, its emphasis on straight-ahead jazz delighting audiences who like their music hard swinging, heartfelt and entertaining.

Popular across the entire spectrum of the UK scene, from Ronnie Scott’s club to major festivals, Simon has recorded four highly-regarded albums, the latest of which, ‘Dear Tubby H.’, garnered a prestigious five star review in ‘Jazzwise’ magazine.
