ENTROPI is my quintet with trumpeter Andre Canniere, keyboardist Rebecca Nash, drummer Matt Fisher and bassist Olie Brice. We have released two albums: New Era (F-IRE presents) in 2015 and Moment Frozen (Whirlwind Recordings) in 2017. Both albums had accompanying UK tours and we have performed at most major UK jazz festivals. Our performance at Marsden Jazz Festival was broadcast on Radio 3 on Christmas Eve 2018. Our third album will be released in Spring 2022 on Whirlwind Recordings.
