Brothers Matt and Andrew Colman have become something of a force to be reckoned with on the international jazz scene. Their eponymous debut, released on Wah Wah 45s in 2011 caused something of a stir, highlighting as it did not only the duo’s flair on trombone and trumpet/flugelhorn respectively, but also their ear for producing contemporary dance floor jazz that pays respect to originators like Dizzy Gillespie, Peter Herbolzheimer and Francy Bolland, as well as today’s more electronic inspired producers – although no one does it quite like the Colmans.
Having played with a myriad of names between them, including The Herbaliser, Pee Wee Ellis and 4-Hero, the siblings from Bristol soon called up some of the finest musicians they knew, put a band together, played across Europe, and even put a Big Band together that closed the Manchester Jazz Festival in 2013.
After a hugely successful album, and a string of highly sought after seven-inch singles (supported by Jazz FM, BBC 6Music and Radio 1!) Colman Brothers are at last due to release their highly anticipated sophomore LP in the autumn of 2015.
