The Red Hot Jazz Club presents
Edward Leaker’s Funk & Soul Night
An exciting evening of original Funk and Groove based Jazz
Plus a delicious dinner from The Old Tannery!
Edward Leaker is a saxophonist based in the South West of England. Having trained at London’s prestigious Royal Academy of Music, Edward has gained a wealth of performing experience as a freelance saxophonist and he is always in demand for his versatility and smooth sound. Edward is best known for his own musical projects including the successful big band ‘Swing Machine Jazz Orchestra’ and saxophone and strings group ‘Blaze’.
The Edward Leaker Band was formed as an instrumental group that would appeal to new and traditional audiences alike. Definitely a jazz group but also accessible to non-jazz listeners. Edward’s original tunes represent a wide range of influences from contemporary smooth jazz to Latin, soul and funk – the style is rooted in groove with a strong emphasis on melody in the tradition of performers such as David Sanborn, Kirk Whalum and Pee Wee Ellis among others.
Edward is a Yanagisawa Saxophones UK Artist and is Head of Woodwind & Jazz at Wells Cathedral Specialist Music School.
