Biography of Luke Annesley

With an emphasis on underplayed tunes, often in interesting new arrangements, and Luke’s own compositions, this group has a fresh approach but aims for musicality rather than innovation-at-all-costs. They have been building a reputation at jazz clubs around the UK having played recently at Sheffield, Brighton, Nottingham, Poole, St Ives and Norwich and at the Cheltenham and Swanage jazz festivals.

Dave Cliff has been well established on the UK jazz scene for a number of years and has developed his own approach to bop guitar. He has been involved in collaborations with some of the top jazz names in the world, such as Lee Konitz, Warne Marsh and Scott Hamilton. Matt Skelton has become one of the most sought-after drummers on the British scene. He has played with many established British names, such as Jim Mullen, Dave O’Higgins and Julian Joseph, as well as American stars such as Harry ‘Sweets’ Edison and Conte Candoli. Simon Thorpe is a band leader, composer and multi-instrumentalist who also happens to be one of the most swinging bass players in the country. He has played with singer Stacy Kent and tenor star Bobby Wellins and leads his own groups which range stylistically from 40s swing to jazz-rock.

Luke Annesley has been on the UK jazz scene since 1993. Initially he composed for and played with the contemporary sextet Ahead Only. Luke performs as a featured soloist in the John Wilson Orchestra, which has played to sell-out audiences at Symphony Hall, Birmingham and the Royal Festival Hall, and which worked with producer Phil Ramone on the soundtrack to the film “Beyond the Sea” with Kevin Spacey. He is a member of the contemporary saxophone ensemble Saxtet which has released a CD on Jazzprint on which some of Luke’s writing is featured. He was a member of the house band on the TV show Johnny Vaughan Tonight and has also played with Michael Garrick, John Dankworth, the “Back to Basie” band and Wayne Henderson’s Jazz Crusaders.
