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! His reputation as a writer and commentator on jazz is immense, but, as we welcome him back for his 12th Birmingham Jazz Festival, it’s the formidable tenor saxophonist who takes centre stage.

Catch him at the following times and places:
