The band that offers the sounds of the cool jazz movement of the 50s and 60s and tells a story exploring a rich emotional landscape.

The Neil Maya Quartet is one of the South West’s most exciting and talented bands, whose aim is to find fresh, new sounds within the wide scope of jazz whilst staying accessible to everyone. The quartet’s music is crisp, colourful, sassy, smooth, atmospheric, intricate, cool, very imaginative and always highly entertaining!

1959 was an extremely influential year. This project brings some of the best and most famous modern jazz recordings alive 60 years on. Expect to hear tunes like So What by Miles Davis, Giant Steps by John Coltrane and Take Five by the Dave Brubeck Quartet.

Electrifying performance from a band that has everything – Crisp melody lines and improvisation to match
