‘Anyone who doubts there’s a UK jazz scene worth taking note of should listen to Joe Downard’s album. A truly impressive debut’ — Jasper Høiby

One of the most indemand bassists in the UK, Joe Downard is widely recognised for his skills as a performer and improvisor.

Joe is a crucial component to many of the UK’s top rhythm sections that range from modern contemporary Jazz and Soul to Electronic and Western African music.

In 2020 Joe released his debut album, Seven Japanese Tales, featuring original compositions of his and a roster of the finest jazz musicians in Europe.

For their Manchester debut, Downard will play alongside Alex Hitchcock (tenor saxophone), James Copus (trumpet), Will Barry (piano), Rupert Cox (synths) and Felix Ambach (drums).
