Henry Spencer and his band Juncture
Henry Spencer is a multi-award winning trumpeter, composer and bandleader. He brings his band Juncture to Proms in the Meadows following recent international touring which saw growing audiences, social media following, TV & radio broadcasts and two sold out performances at EFG London Jazz Festival. This special concert will feature brand new music as well as music from his latest release, ‘The Survivor and The Descendant’ (listen here: https://ffm.to/henryspencerep) and a collaboration with The Bristol Millennium Orchestra.
With Grammy Award Winner Dave Darlington in New York, Henry Spencer released his album, ‘The Reasons Don’t Change’ (Whirlwind Recordings) and has since been receiving critical acclaim across Europe and the UK:“Contender for Album of The Year” – All About Jazz
“Spectacular” – The Guardian
“Henry Spencer is considered one of the great talents of the British jazz scene. His great talent is drawing a high level of recognition. Listen to Spencer’s genius” – ★★★★★ InMusic (Germany)
Astonishing dynamic variety, compositional flair and a measured vigour mark out this fast-rising star of the London scene and his multi-award-winning and close-knit band: emotive and evocative music that touches jazz, rock and minimalism and makes for an energising sound of its own.
The deep musical understanding between the musicians combined with Henry’s fresh compositional approach led them to winning the Best Newcomer Award at Marlborough Jazz Festival and The Emerging Excellence Award (HMUK).
