Mark Armstrong with The Spin Trio @ The Wheatsheaf, Oxford
Thursday 16 October 2014, 8:30 pm - 11:00 pm
£10 / £8 (concessions) / £6 (students)
Mark Armstrong is one of the leading jazz/latin trumpet players in the UK; in addition to a fiendishly busy gig/touring schedule, he finds time to be Professor of Trumpet at the Royal College of Music and Music Director of the National Youth Jazz Orchestra – neither of which is terribly surprising when you hear him play.
As a jazz musician, he was a regular player with the late great Stan Tracey, and has also been featured soloist in Clarke Tracey’s quartet over the years. Mark is also a fixture in the leading big bands in the country, the BBC Big Band and the London Jazz Orchestra, and when the mood takes him, he turns his hand to salsa – he works regularly with Robin Jones’ King Salsa and Cubana Bop, two of the leading salsa groups in the UK at the moment.
