FRANK HOLDER QUARTET
Frank Holder: Vocals/Percussion
Stan Robinson: Sax
Mark Cross: Bass
Geoff Castle: Drums
Singer/percussionist Frank Holder joined the legendary John Dankworth Seven sharing vocals with Dame Cleo Laine, and has since established himself as one of our best ever jazz singers; also arguably never bettered in the art of 'scatting'. Frank is also a formidable percussionist and for many years enhanced Britain's finest ever Latin jazz group ‘Paz’ with his outstanding talents.
Ex Nucleus pianist Geoff Castle was a member of Ronnie Scott's Quintet in 1979 and has appeared at the club many times. He has played with Frank for over fifteen years with 'Paz' and 'Castle, Frank 'n Stan' with Stan Robinson. Tubby Hayes was cited as saying that he believed Robinson to be among the most promising new British tenor saxophonists to have emerged during the late 1950s.
Widely recognised for his full-toned delivery, agile technique and harmonic detail, Stan Robinson's style reflects the influence of several leading American jazzmen, including Sonny Rollins and Joe Henderson.
