The Oxford Jazz Quintet, Oxford

In their words…

The Oxford Jazz Quintet was founded by Andy Boyd (Trumpet) and Rick Cooper (Sax) in 1996 and was soon joined by Tim Richardson (Drums), Steve Smith (Bass) and Richard Dutton (Piano).

The Aim of the quintet has always been to play an upbeat mixture of jazz, funk & soul from such greats as Freddie Hubbard, and Art Pepper. The funky and cool west coast sound soon developed into something special that audiences of all ages could appreciate. It was clear that the quintet was a hit after being hired to play many times for royalty, the rich & famous, and its fair share of weddings and corporate functions.

The Band has also been joined by such great musicians as Jamie Cullum (Universal records star jazz recording artist), Shannon Harris (Wheatus, Rod Stewart, Lilly Allen, Amy McDonald), Anthony Strong (a rising star, and previously with Charlotte Church), and Joe Stilgoe (another rising star & son of Richard Stilgoe), to name but a few.

The Oxford Jazz Quintet continues to be a band which is both energetic and entertaining. We put the fun in ‘Funky’, and the groove back into ‘Groovy! As for the music, the band play a mix of classic jazz standards, bebop, funk and can do anything from dinner music to foot tappin, on the dance floor swing classics.
