Andy Quin

Born in London. Classically trained, started playing jazz at 8 years of age. Many concerts and gigs over 25 years as a professional. Played and recorded with many of the UK'S leading jazz musicians including Guy Barker, Stan Sulzmann, Steve Sidwell, Roy Williams and many more. Best known for jazz compositions for Tv, advertising and film. Please see website for more details.

'The music was the jazz standard Tiger rag. The pianist a virtuoso, who one evening last November held a capacity crowd at London’s Cadogan Hall spellbound. He went on to give electrifying performances of two more jazz pieces, and was cheered to the rafters. But this was a performance and a concert with a difference. No surprise in the repertoire: Cadogan Hall gladly hosts jazz concerts as well as being the London home of the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. The surprise was the pianist, Andy Quin. For Quin is not a professional pianist at all, but a man who makes his living writing music for films, television and advertising.

Quin’s set had everything: casually but expertly executed Art Tatum-esque runs up and down the keyboard, a fascinating version of a Coltrane tune with sustained passages of perpetuum mobile, and a Gershwin finale in which he astonished the audience by doubling an already nippy tempo and then doubling it again.’
