Excited to announce this gig at Landscove Village Hall TQ13 7LZ on 30th May 2015.


The Neil Maya Quartet www.neilmayaquartet.co.uk along with Dave Holdsworth on trumpet is playing a gig partly devoted to the legendry '50s trumpeter Clifford Brown as part of the sold out Clifford Brown workshop weekend I am running (with amazing admin support from Charlie Lowe) 2nd set is about compositions by me and Tom Unwin (NMQ pianist)


Entrance is £7 and U18s £5. The gig starts at 8pm and should be a cracker. Am practising really hard over all those crazy II V Is and the like that Clifford Brown cooked up in his compositions like Tiny Capers, Daahoud and Joy Spring.

Hi and thanks for stopping by!!

 

Music has been with me since early childhood. I feel very privileged to be able to earn my living as a musician.

 

As is the way with the arts, I do a number of different disciplines within music. I play soprano, alto, and tenor saxes and clarinet professionally. I teach clarinet, saxophone,jazz improvisation (all instruments) and music theory as well as running various groups including a big band, jazz bands, a clarinet group and workshops (usually with a improvisational slant). I also regularly arrange and compose and partake in quite a bit of band leading. My influences and interests lie primarily in jazz and classical music, but I also love working with salsa, funk, soul, motown, blues and more. Oh and by the way, I read music, play by ear and improvise to a high standard.

 

This site should explain everything. Look around check me out and if you want to know more, get in touch. If you want to see me live, or check my availability, you can check out my public gig calendar...Here, or my availability calendar...Here.
