Alex Merritt Quartet featuring Jason Rebello
Alex started his first quartet after studying jazz performance at the Birmingham Conservatoire under leading Saxophonists Julian Seigel and Jean Toussaint and composer/pianist Hans Koller and Mike Gibbs amongst others.
Now a Bristol resident, he has begun to find new local connections to work with. Namely, his new quartet featuring top pianist Jason Rebello, from nearby Bradford-upon-Avon; and Dave Smith (Mark Lockheart, Robert Plant) based in Frome.
A lot of influences feed into his quartet’s music, many from Alex’s parallel interest in composition- composers such as Berg, Bartok and Messiaen and the Carnatic music of Southern India as well as many jazz influences.
