In 1959, saxophonist Ronnie Scott opened the door to a small basement club in London’s west end where local musicians could jam. Today, it is one of the world’s most famous jazz clubs attracting packed houses and the biggest names in jazz and popular music and Ronnie Scott’s welcoming, stylish setting is also home to London’s coolest late night hang.

 

FREDDIE GAVITA

Freddie is one of the most in demand and versatile trumpet players in Britain today. Whether its playing searing pop trumpet with Paloma Faith or delivering heartfeltl ballads with the Ronnie Scott's Club quintet, he is guarenteed to wow any audience.

 Freddie began playing piano aged 6, and took up the trumpet at 7, learning with Norfolk jazz legend Dave Amis, who taught Freddie until he left Norwich for London in 2004. He took a shine to the music of Louis Armstrong as a child, which left him in no doubt about pursuing a career as a jazz trumpeter.

Having been described as "a cross between Kenny Wheeler and Freddie Hubbard" during the Norwich Students' Jazz Orchestra performance at the Queen Elizabeth Hall in 2002,  Freddie went on to gain a place on the inaugural Royal Academy of Music Junior Jazz program. He then graduated from the degree course in 2008 with first class honours in Jazz Trumpet, having studied under Gerard Presencer, Pat White, Martin Speake, Mike Lovatt, Noel Langley, Nick Smart and Tim Garland.

A stalwart of NYJO from 2004-7, Freddie has been a fixture on the British big-band scene. He plays regularly with the Stan Sulzmann Big Band, the Laurence Cottle Big Band, the Dankworth Million Dollar Big Band, the Syd Lawrence Orchestra, the Gareth Lockrane Big Band, Frank Griffith Big Band, the Callum Au Big Band, and has been a member of the Ronnie Scott's Jazz Orchestra since 2007. He also runs his own big band, a joint project with fellow Academy graduate Calum Gourlay. The band has notably appeared in the London Jazz Festival and opened the first Con-Fest in 2010. One of Freddie's most prestigious performances was as a featured soloist on BBC Radio 2 with the BBC Big Band.

In 2008 Freddie was lucky enough to be involved in the Scott Walker "Drifting and Tilting - the Songs of Scott Walker" concerts at the Barbican Theatre. He played the part of the "Flugelman" in Walker's song "Cue", which took him six years to finish.

Freddie runs his own quartet playing his original music to great critical acclaim. The band features long-standing accomplices Kit Downes, Calum Gourlay and James Maddren, and has played at venues such as Ronnie Scott's, the 606 Club, the Vortex, and the Con Cellar Bar. They recently performed a 40 minute concert in the Royal Albert Hall's Elgar Room, which was broadcast on Radio 3 as part of the Proms Plus series.

He is also a part of Fletch's Brew, one the UK's hardest hitting Jazz/Rock/Fusion bands! They have a Friday and Saturday night residency at Ronnie Scott's Jazz Club, featuring guitarist Paul Stacy (Oasis), bassist Laurence Cottle (Black Sabbath) and bandleader drummer Mark Fletcher (Mark Murphy, Lianne Carrol)

Freddie has won many prizes and awards, including the British Jazz Award for Rising Star in 2008, the BBC Maida Vale Session of the Year in 2010, and the Future Inns Jazz Award 2010.
