Vancouver-born trumpeter Jay Phelps has been a prominent and distinguished figure on the international jazz circuit. He is best known for his co-leading role with his jazz quartet ‘Empirical’, which spent years touring major festivals with their self-titled debut album, while garnering the type of worldwide media attention that UK jazz musicians hadn’t enjoyed for years. ‘Empirical’ is considered one of the major influences in kick-starting the current young British jazz movement. Jay is viewed as an enabler for many of the scene’s top artists and groups, from Shabaka Hutchings, Moses Boyd, Femi Koleoso (Ezra Collective), to Nubya Garcia, Ashley Henry, Reuben James, and many more.
