"A Trumpeter whose style is a sizzling update of the Morgan/Hubbard approach." MOJO Magazine.
Brought up around the sounds of jazz by a music loving father, Quentin had seen many of the greats by a young age, including Dizzy Gillespie, Lionel Hampton & Dave Brubeck. This had a profound influence upon his decision to become a professional musician.
In 20 years as a professional Quentin has established himself as one of the UK’s top Jazz/Commercial trumpeters, having performed, toured & recorded with a plethora of internationally renowned artists across many genres. These include Fred Wesley, Gregory Porter, Mark Ronson, Kyle Eastwood, Omar, Basement Jaxx, Roy Ayers, Alicia Keys, Dennis Rollins and Mulatu Astatke.
Quentin’s debut album ‘If Not Now, Then When?’on SunlightSquare Records garnered much critical acclaim:
"Proving that Collins knows a thing or two about good songwriting ‘If Not Now, Then When?’ is an impressively intense debut"
“This debut album by England's top young trumpet master is breathtaking from start to finish, and is sure to catapult Quentin to stardom and yet more critical acclaim”
Quentin has subsequently released 2 highly acclaimed albums with QCBA, a band co-lead by tenor titan Brandon Allen, as well as several as featured sideman and composer with the Kyle Eastwood band, with whom he continues to tour across the globe.
