Alex Yellowlees Hot Club Quartet

Alex Yellowless Hot Club Quartet

Overview

Alex Yellowlees has been called a modern day Stephane Grappelli.

Whilst he draws on his extensive experience of Celtic music along with the blues and jazz, Alex performs with three of Scotland’s premier jazz musicians; first calls all: virtuoso guitarists Ged Brockie and Mike Nisbet and the amazing double bassist Kenny Ellis.  All three have performed with the jazz greats when they are on tour in Scotland.

From the music of Cole Porter, Duke Ellington and Django Reinhardt through to the modern sounds of Stevie Wonder this wonderful band creates a beautiful mellow sound that is truly a joy to listen to.  The quartet performs exciting, intoxication and truly inspirational swing jazz, laced with Latin rhythms and spiced with Celtic gypsy flair!
