Nötts Quartet

Declan Forde piano Matthew Herd sax Brodie Jarvie bass Steve Hanley drums


“Nötts Quartet successfully plays music that can help further and re-popularize jazz-- accessible, smart and melodic songs, mastery of their instruments and the lineage, and soulful interplay that emphasizes the sound of the group.”

- Jon Irabagon (2008 Thelonious Monk International Saxophone Competition winner)


A newly formed group of up and coming musicians from across the UK. Nötts Quartetʼs refreshing style of writing and single-mindedness as a collective mark them out amongst an exciting new generation of composers and improvisers. The group endeavors to approach improvisation with a linear and compositional ideal; striving to combine our love of the jazz tradition with European influence and contemporary grooves.


The majority of the music will be original compositions from Declan, Matthew and Brodie, with some other adapted pop tunes from the likes of Bon Iver and Neil Young.
