SIMON SPILLETT

Artist Bio

Simon Spillett is a man of many talents: his 2015 biography of Tubby Hayes was widely praised, he played a key role in the film Tubby Hayes – A Man in a Hurry, as a writer of monumentally detailed liner notes he is in a class of his own, he writes columns and reviews for several jazz magazines and he is a Patron of the Jazz Centre UK – no wonder he won the British Jazz Award for Services to Jazz in 2016! However, as he returns for his 11th Birmingham festival (he wrote eloquently about the first ten in Jazz Rag), it’s the formidable tenor saxophonist that takes centre stage.
