The Sam Newbould Quintet, winner of the
Keep an Eye Records award 2019 and selected artists at the InJazz Showcase Festival 2021, will embark on a 7 date UK tour in September 2023. Following their sold out performance at the Vortex (London) in 2019 and their set at this year’s Love Supreme Festival, the band will return to the UK between 18th - 24th September. The tour will premiere brand new music written by Newbould in the build up to their third album recording, to be released in 2024.
This will be the first UK-wide tour for the band, with dates at major jazz venues across the country. The international lockdown due to coronavirus prevented the band from presenting their last album Bogus Notus (ZenneZ Records) to UK fans. With the lockdown lifted and a new album on the horizon, the tour is a chance to reconnect with their UK audience, family and friends.
The band features Sam Newbould (alto saxophone, compositions), Bernard van Rossum (tenor saxophone), Xavi Torres (piano), Guy Salamon (drums) and Jort Terwijn (bass).

Dubbed an “archetypal jazz outsider” (Jazzwise Magazine), northern English saxophonist Sam Newbould has emerged as one of the most distinctive voices on the Dutch scene. His quintet draws together an international line-up of musicians from the UK, Spain, Israel and the Netherlands. Their latest album, Bogus Notus (ZenneZ Records 2021), mixes the melodic lyricism of jazz and folk with heavy danceable grooves and explosive improvisations. The album received international praise and was described as “compulsive listening” (All About Jazz). Based in Amsterdam, the quintet have been invited to perform at
BIMHUIS (Amsterdam), Vortex (UK), Lantaren Venster (Rotterdam) and A Love Supreme Festival (UK), amongst others.
