Gabriel and Christian Garrick Quintet

Friday, April 05, 2019

Two highly talented brothers who rarely get to play together, now with an exciting new project of swinging creative jazz. Gabriel Garrick took up the trumpet aged seven and started gigging at an early age with his father and older brother. Since his early childhood he has had exposure to a wealth of different musicians representing a variety of genres. Gabriel leads various groups of his own and is the Director of the Michael Garrick founded Jazz Academy. Christian Garrick began playing violin aged five. At seven he met Stephane Grappelli at The Stables in Wavendon, an encounter that would influence him and his playing enormously. Christian is an improvising violinist, a composer and a bandleader and is active on the international concert circuit and on the London studio session scene. He is Professor of jazz and non-classical violin at three of London’s major music conservatoires.
