Henry Armburg Jennings

Henry Armburg Jennings is a jazz trumpet and flugelhorn player based in London, UK. Since recording his debut album' Out of the Starting Blocks' at the tender age of 17, Henry Armburg Jennings has gone on to establish himself as one of the most sought-after trumpeters in the country. His ferocious technique, coupled with a true passion for jazz and a maturity beyond his years, has led many leading British jazz statesmen to hire him. Since these early years, Henry is rarely seen with his own outfits but can be frequently heard playing with Clark Tracey’s bands. After much anticipation, in May 2014, Henry recorded his second album, Having A Jam, featuring a drum-less trio line-up. This type of format was significant in Henry’s musical upbringing and the latest album pays homage to those experiences. “[An] outstanding soloist, who is as at home on a poised flugelhorn ballad as he is playing more fiery trumpet excursions.†“Agile trumpeter, Henry Armburg Jennings, stretched double-time bop lines over hints of the rougher eloquence of the earliest jazz trumpeters.†“[Henry] plays with real grace and maturity.â€
