Well done to bassist Adam King on his winner’s gig at the PizzaExpress Jazz Club in Soho on Sunday 5 June. Adam’s success in the 2015 annual Musicians’ Company Young Jazz Musician Award revealed one of the most promising jazz artists of his generation. His winner’s gig featured Adam with three outstanding collaborators – pianist Leon Greening (who won the competition himself in 2002), drummer Ed Richardson and saxophonist Sammy Mayne – playing modern classics and original compositions.
