Tom Harrison’s 12-date ‘2 Quartets’ tour of the UK in April pays tribute to the Grammy-winning Joe Lovano of the same name, bringing together two excellent bands for two separate weeks of touring.

His debut album ‘DAGDA’ was well received by the media, described as “impressive” by Jazzwise and “a strong calling card” by All About Jazz. The album was launched with a 22-date UK tour, featuring a series of guest tenor saxophonists including Jean Toussaint and Paul Booth Appearing with Tom will be long-time collaborators David Lyttle and Conor Chaplin as well as Jamil Sheriff, head of Jazz Studies at the prestigious LCoM.
