FOR excellence in live jazz in the English/Welsh borderlands look no further than Oswestry’s The Hermon this Sunday night!

In a new collaboration with Birmingham Jazz, legendary jazz trumpeter Henry Lowther with his all-star band Still Waters will be performing as part of a UK tour and features music from the band’s new album Can’t Believe, Won’t Believe.

Lowther has over 60 years of playing experience, with an impressive portfolio of activities, many of them dedicated to the exploration of jazz whilst also being active in classical music and as a session player in the world of pop and rock!

An open-minded, inquisitive player, his work embraces a broad spectrum of approaches, from composition to improvisation, strongly influenced by his 45-year association with jazz players such as Sir John Dankworth, Gil Evans, Mike Gibbs and George Russell.

Lowther also played with Keef Hartley’s band in Woodstock in 1969, recorded in the 70s with Elton John and was involved with the 80s pop/post-rock band Talk Talk.

He has worked with the Berlin Contemporary Jazz Orchestra, London Philharmonic Orchestra, City Of Brimingham Symphony Orchestra and has a long-standing association with the London Jazz Orchestra. For details go to
