about

Skyline is the debut album by trombonist Tom Green, winner of the 2013 Dankworth Prize for Jazz Composition. His Septet weaves together influences as diverse as flamenco, traditional folk and New Orleans second line, to form tunes with striking melodies, colourful harmony and propulsive grooves. Bringing together some of the most talented young musicians in the London jazz scene, the group creates a melodic, warm and distinct sound world using the full range of textures available in the seven-piece ensemble.

The Septet has performed across the UK and internationally, including an 8-date UK tour in December 2013, performances at Wigmore Hall and the Stables in Wavendon, and recent workshops, festivals and concerts in Tunisia, Italy and Switzerland.


“Remarkable… only the very best arrangers can get a sound like that from four horns”
Evan Parker

“Some of the most exciting original new music I have heard for a long time”
Dame Cleo Laine

“Contemporary chamber jazz that is both elegant and lively, full of tightly written passages that blossom into free playing with natural ease”
Tony Benjamin, Venue Magazine Bristol
