Described by the late Humphrey Lyttelton as ‘formidable’, Simon Spillett is a jazz saxophonist with an outstanding technique who plays with energy & invention.  Celebrated jazz leaders and bands with whom he has worked have included Sir John Dankworth, Stan Tracey, Peter King and The Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Orchestra.  Described by Alan Barnes as “the kind of big toned wailing tenor player that I like. The influences of Tubby Hayes and Johnny Griffin are clearly discernible in his sound, harmonic thinking, and in his no-nonsense determination in getting things swinging.”  A report in The Guardian said of award –winning Simon “Straight-ahead, high energy jazz is his line and he does it with aplomb.”  In the 2016 British Jazz Awards, Simon won the prestigious ‘Services to British Jazz’ award.
