Biography of Jamil Sheriff

Jamil Sheriff was born at Bolton Royal Infirmary in March 1977 and in 1995 he moved to Leeds to study at the College of Music.

1998 Jamil was invited to work in the Rosie Brown quartet, an ensemble that has evolved over the years, but one that Jamil still enjoys being a part of. The current line up of this ensemble includes bassist John Thorn and drummer Jonas Bachman. The latest venture of the group is a joint writing collaboration between Jamil and Rosie, the result of which will be their forthcoming album.


1999 Jamil joined the Andrew Colman quartet. Andrew had recently won the Young Jazz Musician of the year competition. The quartet recorded an album featuring artists Peter King, Tina May, Jez Franks and Dave Newton. The group has been performing regularly over the past six years and now includes drummer John Perry and Bassist John Thorn.

2002 Jamil was invited to work for nationally acclaimed composer and saxophonist James Russell. This work has lead to the touring performances of the Romeo and Juliet Jazz Suite and the Under Milk Wood Jazz suite.

2003 Jamil formed his own group, The Jamil Sheriff Octet. That year the octet recorded its debut album Daydreams, which went on to receive high acclaim throughout the country. The Octet has toured theatres and jazz venues extensively over the past three years and is still the catalyst for much of Jamils new writing. The continued support of Arts Council England has helped with the planning and funding of the spring 2006 national tour. The band is Jamil Sheriff, John Perry, Zoltan Dekany, Pat McCarthy Kevin Hollborough, Ben Martin, Joel Purnell and Andrew Colman.

2005 Jamil received commissions from the National Centre for Early Music and Manchester Jazz Festival. Both of these works were written for new ensembles and featured artists such as Eroll Roberts, Dave Edge, Richard Turner and Henrich Lidderman. Aside from performing and writing, Jamil is currently a lecturer at York University and Leeds College of music.
