Ralph Porrett Quintet are an exciting young jazz ensemble who perform original material and explore the repertoire of composers as diverse as Bill Frisell to Maurice Ravel. Led by Ralph Porrett, the first ever guitarist to perform in the BBC Young Jazz Musician Final he has played at the Barbican, Royal Albert Hall, 02 Arena and Wembley Stadium. Jazz pianist Barry Green has described the quintet as “world class”, and they have entertained audiences across the UK, including a sold-out show at Pizza Express (Dean Street) and a slot at EFG London Jazz Festival. An unconventional frontline (alto sax, voice and flute) paired with a drummer-less rhythm section (double bass and guitar) creates a distinctive sound world rife with musical opportunity.
