The new quartet album is out now
Free to download or listen to on Bandcamp
This is the debut recording by the brand-new David Beebee Quartet, featuring Julian Nicholas on saxophones, Eric Ford on drums, David Beebee on piano and Jakub Cywinski on double bass. Julian is a longstanding member of Loose Tubes and has an important role in the Brighton and South Coast jazz scene not only as a player but also as an educator and promoter. Eric is an amazing drummer who plays with many interesting projects. "...the precision with which he plays complex patterns... are constantly striking features" says John Fordham in The Guardian. Polish-born Jakub, who is now resident in London, has toured all over the world with the best orchestras. As well as classical music he is also exploring his collaboration with contemporary jazz musicians. David Beebee plays piano and writes the tunes. He lives near Brighton and plays a variety of instruments. He also runs a recording studio and a small jazz record label and is busy writing all kinds of different music.
"Now prepared to be totally floored by the dynamic music of David Beebee" – Ronnie Scott's Magazine
“David Beebee is brilliant...his scores are world class" – Jazzwise magazine
"Nicholas is characteristically sure-footed and affecting - he has one of the most winsome tenor sounds in the UK and his soprano tone is simply exemplary in its keening purity…" - Chris Parker - Vortex Reviews
"Julian is one of those rare players whose playing is a direct reflection of his true character and nature. Uplifting, intelligent, positive, genuine and filled with joy. I've enjoyed listening to him every time - one of my real faves!" - Iain Ballamy
"[Julian] is a courageous soloist with a strong conviction about the importance of music to society, and he has the same energy now as when I met him - and the same cheeky twist!" - Django Bates
