|Steve Fishwick / Osian Roberts...|
Steve Fishwick made his first record in 1996 with The Royal Academy of Music and in 1998 with The European Youth Jazz Orchestra. Several recordings with Gordon Wellard followed before he formed a quintet with Osian Roberts who had been at the Academy with him. |
The Osian Roberts / Steve Fishwick Quintet (picture right) made it's first recording in 2003 and up to 2015 has produced a number of fine albums very much in the style of the Blue Note tenor/trumpet sessions from the 1950s and '60s. Record reviewers have put Roberts in the style of Hank Mobley while Fishwick makes no secret of his admiration of Kenny Dorham's playing.
Two recent CDs have added US baritone sax player Frank Basile to form a sextet.
