Gary Crosby Quartet
@ Crazy Coqs
Bassist, band leader, and co-founder of Tomorrow’s Warriors, Gary Crosby OBE leads his quartet for a heady mix of calypso, jazz, and Blue Beat inspiration for this night of Caribbean inspired good times at Crazy Coqs.
Leader of the acclaimed Gary Crosby’s Nu Troop and founder of the mighty Jazz Jamaica, Gary’s impact and influence on the UK jazz scene spans four decades.
Through Tomorrow’s Warriors, Gary has been at the heart of the recent British jazz explosion, nurturing young musical talent and increasing opportunity, diversity, and excellence in and through jazz. He is also the artistic director of the acclaimed Nu Civilisation Orchestra and, in 2018, became the 14th recipient of the prestigious Queen’s Medal for Music – the first person of colour and first non-classical musician ever to receive the award.
