Tenor titan Jean Toussaint leads another fine band of top young jazz musicians.

Grammy-winning saxophonist Jean first came to prominence when he joined Art Blakey’s Jazz Messengers in 1982, after studying at the prestigious Berklee College of Music in Boston. Since leaving that legendary band in the mid-eighties Jean has continued to hone his upbeat style while his blistering technique and lyrical sound have graced many great bands – from Wynton Marsalis, Gil Evans and Julian Joseph’s band to his own many excellent bands. Expect exciting music from a saxophonist of international stature.

“Art Blakey used to say ‘it doesn’t matter how complex you want to play, as long as you swing and play from the heart’ then he’d cite the great John Coltrane as an example. I owe it all to the great Art Blakey and I’ll be a Jazz Messenger for life.” Jean Toussaint
