Alto saxophonist Sam Braysher grew up in Dereham, Norfolk, before moving to London to study at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama. He now leads a busy and varied freelance career, and received international critical acclaim for his debut album, Golden Earrings, which the Observer called ‘surprising and delightful’.
Will Arnold-Forster is one of the most in-demand guitarists in London, playing with many of the leading lights of the capital’s thriving straight-ahead jazz scene. Will attended the Guildhall School and, like Sam, was a GSMD Chartered Surveyors’ Prize winner.
Sam and Will are both regular performers at London’s foremost jazz venues, including Ronnie Scott’s, Pizza Express Jazz Club, the 606 Club, The Vortex and Kansas Smitty’s. They will perform a selection of jazz standards by composers including George Gershwin, Kurt Weill, Jerome Kern and Richard Rodgers.
