Biography of James Hayes

Pianist, composer and arranger James Hayes has played in many London venues with vocal and instrumental duos, trios, quartets, big bands and musicals. He's also an active session keyboard player. An engineer by trade, James has studied Jazz piano in Paris with Jeff Gardner for two years. After a short career in the financial industry, he decided to become a full-time musician in 2001. He then enrolled on Mark Bassey's composition course at the City Lit and the Jamey Aebersold summer school with pianist Phil de Greg and UK-based sax player Frank Griffith. Since, James
has shared the bandstand with Steve Fishwick, Tim Whitehead, Luca Luciano, Tony Woods, Janusz Carmello and many other great jazzmen.

"James' piano playing straddles the musical worlds of bebop, modern jazz and funk. Inspired by the playing of Herbie Hancock, Bill Evans and Lyle Mays, he specialises in tasty chord comping, slinky vamps and slick horn-like soloing. He reacts instinctively to any sounds around him, and is a skilled accompanist and arranger."
