Simon Spillett (tenor) John Critchinson (piano) Andrew Cleynedert (bass) Spike Wells (drums)
Winner of the BBC Jazz Awards 2007 Rising Star, Simon's driving and energised style has often been compared with that of his idol, the late great Tubby Hayes, arguably the most accomplished of the post-war British bebop generation, and his approach does indeed share a similar love of dare-devil tempos and all-out, no-holds-barred, intensity.
"Tubby Hayes may have passed away…but there's no question that his boisterous spirit has found an heir in Simon Spillett, who has been turning heads up and down the country."
Clive Davis, The Sunday Times
