Lukas Oravec Quartet

date calender icon Tuesday 26th March

A welcome return for virtuoso Slovakian trumpeter Lukas Oravec, who made such a strong impression on audiences during previous visits to Zeffirelli’s in 2013 & 2015. Drawing on the style and technique of some of the jazz trumpet greats – comparison has been made with Clifford Brown – it’s not surprising to learn that since his last appearance here Oravec has co-led a quintet with the great US saxophonist and composer Bob Mintzer. You don’t get that gig unless you’re already somewhere in the stratosphere.
