In a nutshell

‘One of the brightest young stars in the jazz firmament’ (Jazzwise Magazine)

Go on...

After spending the start of the year performing the opening residency for Quincy Jones's new jazz club in Dubai, this will be Ollie Howell’s first UK show of the year, giving you the chance to get his new album Self Identity a week before the international release (out on Ropeadope, 14 April).

Look forward to an evening of live music from Ollie and his band reaching from jazz to cinematic and electronic elements.

What to Expect

On this special launch evening, you can expect the punchy blend of creativity, stunning improvisation and critically acclaimed compositions that has won him fans like Quincy Jones, Melvyn Bragg and music-lovers all over the world. A launch party is always a great atmosphere — a launch party on a Friday night in Shoreditch goes above and beyond.
