Mike Hobart is an experienced and soulful saxophonist who has played with the likes of Esther Phillips and Maceo Parker. His first inspiration was the interactive flow of Miles Davis’ 1960s quintet and the edgy freedoms of latter-day Blue Note, but a lot has happened since then.
The Urban Jazz Collective keeps the improv flowing, but add world music flavours and the rhythms of contemporary dance. They deliver a mix of strong originals and well-chosen covers; recent gigs include a live Jazz FM broadcast and the Vortex.
Chris Lee: Trumpet
Mike Hobart: Saxophones

He formed his own band Such Sweet Thunder in 1997.
Danny Keane is an in-demand working musician who doubles on cello. Recent credits include Mulatu Astatke and the Heliocentrics. He is currently working on an album of original material, as well as a busy working schedule.
Sven Atterton has just returned after four years working in the US. He studied at Berklee College of Music and worked extensively on the East Coast. He is also an experienced producer.
