Loz Speyer Quartet

Loz Speyer - trumpet, flugelhorn
Billy Marrows - guitar
Mark McQuillan - bass
Anmol Mohara - drums



"Sparky, open, attractive jazz with all the punch and accessibility customarily associated with rock music.”

Chris Parker, the Times
“An excellent, gutsy, hard edged quartet session.”

John Lewis, Time Out

“The conversational energy of the performers, and the hipness of Tony Bianco's drumming, lift the music above the regular classic-jazz homage. Speyer, who has listened to Miles Davis’ pre-electric style with intelligence and imagination, is excellent throughout.”

John Fordham, the Guardian
"A set of immaculate hard bop compositions… bright trumpet with a tone combining generous doses of Brownie and hints of Woody Shaw or mid-period Miles… The band is both fluid and tight, able to navigate the quick-shifting rhythms and accents of Speyer’s songs quite nimbly.”
David Lewis, Cadence USA
