Scotland's Brass Jaw started life as an excellent saxophone quartet, but the decision to replace one of the reeds with Ryan Quigley's trumpet was an inspired move, bringing an entirely new dimension to the band's sound. It's worked with audiences as well - the quartet was a huge hit at the 2010 Gateshead International Jazz Festival, and they've recently been voted 'Ensemble of the Year' in the 2011 Parliamentary JazzAwards.

One of the things that give the quartet their own distinctive personality is their interest in exploring the acoustic qualities of different venues, and the Lit & Phil has wonderful potential for the four band members to bounce their sounds around the room. Entertainment and musical adventurousness come together in a concert that's sure to be a treat.
