In 2012 Geoff conducted the BBC Big Band in their tribute to Graham Collier at the London Jazz Festival, and went on to conduct and oversee the recording of Collier’s last works for the double CD Luminosity, released in 2014. As band leader, with the “Geoff Warren Quartet,” he has made numerous recordings for BBC national radio and toured in Hungary (1984) and Yugoslavia (1985) for: the British Council. In 1983 the Arts Council of Great Britain, commissioned him to write a composition for this quartet.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
