Jay Phelps Quartet
Vancouver born trumpeter Jay Phelps has been a prominent and distinguished figure on the international Jazz circuit. Playing under band leader Gary Crosby Jay was welcomed into the Jazz Jamaica family in 2002; earning his stripes as a Tomorrow’s Warrior. We know him best from his co-leading role with his jazz quartet ‘Empirical’ which toured for a few years before his solo album Jay walking in 2010.
OST (Original Soundtrack) is a unique event where live improvised music meets film – short independent film, feature film and animation.
Having never seen the films previously, the OST collective lead by Canadian trumpeter Jay Phelps, is constantly on their toes as they navigate through their improvised score, while sonically complimenting the film as the story unfolds. Prepare for a truly engaging experience for both the audience and musicians alike.
You can expect to hear internationally acclaimed artists, performing contemporary Jazz, followed by the main event – a film especially commissioned for Southport Jazz Festival with live music.
