The Gareth Roberts Quartet

Welsh trombonist Gareth Roberts, one of Wales’ leading jazz musicians, visits Cowbridge to perform his acclaimed Duke Ellington set, including classics such as ‘Take the A Train’, ‘In a Sentimental Mood’, ‘Don’t Mean a Thing’ and ‘Caravan’.   Professor of jazz trombone at the RWCM&D, Musical Director of the Monmouth Big Band and leader of various other bands, Gareth is well known on the Welsh jazz scene for his humorous and proudly Welsh take on the jazz tradition.

‘A superb evening of music from four local heroes who genuinely deserve to be more widely known. These musicians brought a real freshness and vitality to Ellington’s music,’ wrote Ian Mann in his Jazz Mann review of the quartet’s concert last year at the Brecon Jazz Festival.
