A JAZZ trumpeter and his all-star sextet are coming to Dorchester next week.

The Quentin Collins Sextet will play Dorchester Corn Exchange on Wednesday, September 25 at 8pm.

Quentin Collins is one of the hardest working and in-demand jazz trumpet players in the world. His all-star band includes alto sax ace, Tom Harrison.

On this tour, Quentin celebrates the release of his new album Road Warrior, featuring the star of the Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra, pianist Dan Nimmer. Road Warrior is a musical depiction of life as a touring musician, which all of these artists know well.

Collins said: "The title track is dedicated to Road Warriors the world over, who spend a large percentage of their lives travelling and plying their trade and the rest of their time trying to hold everything else together!"

Other tunes that stand out include Look Ahead, which was inspired by a beautiful conversation Collins had with his 10-year-old son, asking him to project years into the future and dream of an outcome of his imagining and The Hill is a tribute to legendary drummer and bandleader Art Blakey and a memory of a life changing performance at the site of Blakey’s childhood home in Pittsburgh.
