Belvedere Jazz & Music Club
BEN HOLDER QUARTET
Ben Holder - violin, piano & vocals
Jez Cook - guitar
Paul Jefferies - double bass
Mal Garrett - drums
Award winning Ben Holder is one of the finest swing jazz violinists in the UK, he also sings and plays piano. Ben's passion is his quartet, a truly fabulous ensemble, delighting audiences with all styles of jazz, blues and swing which Ben has taken the time and energy to develop his own original style of music, resulting in some breathtaking, inventive compositions. During his classical studies at the Birmingham Conservatoire, Ben began listening to Jazz – classic masters such as Benny Goodman and Oscar Peterson and of course the great jazz violinists including Grappelli, Joe Venuti and the awe inspiring Stuff Smith. Ben's innate sense of swing rhythm (something which often eludes classical players) stems from those early listening sessions – and his various awards bear testimony to his abilities. Meals at Candle lit tables from 6:30pm ~ Newcomers most welcome
