Tenorman Dave Quincy began his career in the early 60s rock bands with the likes of Jet Harris, Chris Farlowe and Terry Smith. In 1969 he formed the acclaimed group “If”, with fellow saxophonist Dick Morrisey, which toured the USA. Their first recording made the top 40 in the US album charts. During the 80s he led Semuta, a Latin-rock combo which frequently played at Ronnie Scott’s Club. He also recorded with the renowned alto player Jamie Talbot. In recent years he has been freelancing on the major UK jazz club circuit. Dave has a big full-blooded tone, flowing with invention and free from the gimmicks often displayed by younger musicians.
