Born: March 1, 1977 Primary Instrument: Piano
In 2003 Jamil formed his own group, The Jamil Sheriff Octet. The group was formed after a successful application to Arts Council England to fund a project that would help develop Jamil’s composing skills and provide stimulating work for regional players. That year the octet recorded its debut album “Daydreams”, which went on to receive high acclaim throughout the country. The Octet has toured theatres and jazz venues extensively over the past three years and is still the catalyst for much of Jamils new writing. The continued support of Arts Council England has helped with the planning and funding of the spring 2007 national tour. The band is Jamil Sheriff, John Perry, Zoltan Dekany, Pat McCarthy Kevin Hollborough, Ben Martin, Joel Purnell and Andrew Colman. “Daydreams” was released by GLP in January 2006 and is available around the World from digital retailers and CD copies are also available from Amazon and CD Baby.
