The project

With the release of his debut album ‘Transient’, award winning trumpeter & composer Freddie Gavita has cemented his place as a leading light on the British jazz scene.

A fearless improviser, “he solos with fluent authority, his tone ranging from the warmly conversational to the eloquently strident.”

Aimed at the heart, not the head, Freddie’s highly evocative collection of compositions has global appeal with scintillating grooves, heartfelt ballads and some serious swing taking you on a musical journey inspired by many travels and tales of his life.
