TALENTED saxophonist Nigel Hitchcock brings his quartet to the Herts Jazz Club on Sunday.

It marks his return to the English scene after spending the last decade in Scotland.

Nigel joined the National Youth Jazz Orchestra at the age of 11, taking the lead alto chair after only a year there and, for the next five years, toured with stars such as Vic Damone, Buddy Greco and Al Martino.

He began to play with various other big bands, function bands and jazz combos and was already a seasoned professional when he left school at 16.

In 1989 Nigel joined the contemporary saxophone quartet Itchy Fingers, touring Europe and South East Asia with the foursome over an 18-month period.

He went on to perform with artists such as Tom Jones, Wet Wet Wet and Robbie Williams before moving to the Isle of Skye to work on his composition skills and commissions for classical work.

Tickets to the see the Nigel Hitchcock Quartet at Campus West, Welwyn Garden City, from 7.45pm are £11 online at, £13 on the door and £5 for students and under-21s.
