Richard West piano
Ashley John-Long double bass
Ger Evans drums

Chop Idols is a partnership between Gethin Liddington and Ceri Williams, who join forces to blow the audience away with their tribute to some of their heroes of the great jazz trumpeters of all time: Dizzy Gillespie, Chet Baker, Clifford Brown, Louis Armstrong, Clark Terry, Miles Davis, Freddie Hubbard, Art Farmer – the list goes on and on.

Ceri and Gethin are both ‘Idols’ in their own right and are becoming in demand all over the UK. The pair blend seamlessly in tight unison phrasing, scintillating duets, melodic counterpoint and as soloists, both passionately expressive and spirited musicians as you will witness.

This five-piece band, with the sublime rhythm section of Richard West on piano, Ashley John Long on bass and Greg Evans on drums, delight audiences and bring warmth and humour to their good-humoured performance of some great tunes.
