‘But a shining light of the whole attractive enterprise is the presence of Stan Sulzmann, who seems to sound more personal and hauntingly moving than ever.’

John Fordham, Jazz UK

A veteran of the UK jazz scene, Stan Sulzmann has a rich and varied career that has included playing with musicians as diverse as Kenny Wheeler, Larry Grenadier and Gwilym Simcock, as well as a prolific output as bandleader.

John Kelman

"I have worked with every style from R&B to Contemporary music as well as with some of the jazz greats. It feels fantastic to be bouncing off the creativity and diversity of another generation of colourful musicians who provide the fuel for many of my current writing and performing projects ."

Stan Sulzmann / Nikki Iles Duo

“This intimate recording is a rare chance to hear two of the UK’s most respected jazz musicians playing tunes they love. Jellymould is proud to be releasing this beautiful record.”

Dom Sales, Jellymould Jazz

Despite a long-standing musical friendship and frequent collaborations, it has been almost 20 years since Stan and Nikki recorded their first album “Treasure Trove” together. Their new offering, “Stardust”, celebrates a shared love of songs, as well as featuring an original composition from each, and is due to be released on Jellymould in late 2015.

Stan Sulzmann Quartet

A new quartet formed by Stan for a BBC broadcast from the London Jazz Festival, 2013. The band features Nick Smart (trumpet), Ross Stanley (organ), and Tim Giles (drums). Playing a mixture of Stan’s original tunes and cunning reworkings of standards, the band puts a contemporary spin on the jazz tradition.
Watch the video below of the band’s debut performance at the London Jazz Festival, playing Stan’s original tune “Broomhill Sunrise”.


Neon Quartet

‘The music produced by the Neon Quartet is at once muscular and thoughtful, rich and subtle, its four members bouncing ideas off each other with infectious enjoyment’.

'...The Quartet’s real strength is how brilliantly they combine as a team, sharing melodic and rhythmic duties on this complex, often dazzling, perpetually shifting, but never overtly “difficult” music. Sulzmann seems to thrive in the company of these still young lions of the UK jazz scene, relishing the challenges their collective levels of adventurousness set for him.'
The Jazz Mann

Neon Quartet is made up of four extraordinary musicians equipped with strong personalities and individual sounds, but it’s when the four play together that the magic really happens. Led by legendary British saxophonist Stan Sulzmann, the quartet combines the values of experience with the freshness and vitality of youth.


Featuring three of the most talked about and in demand players of their generation: Kit Downes, Jim Hart and Tim Giles, Neon’s latest album “Subjekt” looks set to firmly root this formidable band as one of the most exciting and leading chamber jazz ensembles in the UK scene.
