Performers

Steve Fishwick
trumpet
Matt Fishwick

Mike Gorman

Steve Fishwick is widely considered to be one of the best jazz trumpet players ever to come from the UK, and is rapidly gaining a global reputation thanks to his flawless technique, and his beautifully flowing, harmonically rich improvisations. He is one of an increasing number of trumpeters who have been heavily influenced by the melodic approach of the late great Kenny Dorham, a figure often overlooked (and undeservedly so) in the pantheon of Jazz Trumpet Legends.

Steve was born in Manchester along with his identical twin brother, drummer Matt, in 1976. They grew up on a diet of big band jazz fed by their parents’ record collection before graduating to the sounds of Charlie Parker and Miles Davis.

Steve has played with most leading UK jazz musicians (Sir John Dankworth, the BBC Big Band, Stan Tracey, Peter King and Mike Carr amongst many, many others), many of the leading European musicians such as George Mraz, Dado Moroni, Claus Raibler, Tony Lakatos, the WDR big band and many US musicians. He won the 2002 British Jazz Awards ‘Rising Star’ prize and in the same year toured the UK with Alan Barnes in place of the great U.S. trumpeter Conte Candoli who sadly and unexpectedly passed away.

On the more commercial side of music he has performed with such stars as Kylie Minogue, Jools Holland and Jamie Cullum and he can be heard playing the jazz trumpet solos on the soundtrack to the British movie release Sex And Drugs And Rock And Roll (starring Andy Serkis of ‘Gollum’ fame). He has released six CDs on the Hard Bop Records label and has performed all over Europe and in New York on numerous occasions.

Steve is principal lecturer of jazz trumpet at Leeds College of Music as well as being on the teaching faculty at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama and London City University.
