Jay Phelps Quartet
Jazz Lates is a series of events that take place in the ‘living room’ of the Old Truman Brewery, at Ninety One. An intimate weekly jazz club in the heart of east London.
On the 24th of November, we are proud to present Jay Phelps
Jay Phelps is a Vancouver-born Canadian Trumpet player with an instantly recognisable warm and projecting tone. He was tutored by the city’s top Jazz and Classical trumpeters and distinguished himself early on as the youngest band-leader in the Vancouver International Jazz Festival’s history.
In 1999 aged 17, Jay moved to London, determined to immerse himself in the jazz scene and immediately attracted the notice of Gary Crosby (Dune records), who offered him work with Jazz Jamaica in 2002 and the opportunity to be a ‘Tomorrow’s Warrior’. Citing Louis Armstrong, Fats Navarro, Clifford Brown, and Miles Davis as his early influences, Jay went on to create and co-lead the UK Jazz sensation Empirical.
