Adam Bishop Quartet
Sax, Trumpet, Piano, Bass, Drums
The Adam Bishop Quartet was formed in 2021 after a 13 year break from jazz with the purpose of performing the original arrangements of “bebop” repertoire from the 40’s, 50’s and 60’s while avoiding any compositions by Charlie Parker. Composers such as Bud Powell, Tadd Dameron, John Lewis, George Shearing and Dizzy Gillespie form the main core of sources. Far from being a museum piece, instead they show the charm and innovation of this music in it’s original form.
Adam is also active in the West End show scene having performed in The Rat Pack, GuysAnd Dolls, White Christmas, Jersey Boys, Hairspray, Mrs Henderson Presents, La Clique and Annie.
His album “Sanctuary” was released in early 2007 on Bishwan Music.
