Sharp Little Bones is the house band of Peggy's Skylight (a multi-award-winning jazz venue) featuring bassist and composer Simon Paterson, drummer Andrew 'Woody' Wood and keyboardist Paul Deats. Joined by MOBO-nominated, multi-BBC Jazz and Parliamentary Jazz Awards winner Tony Kofi, they form a virtuosic quartet playing compositions that reach deep within and far outside the jazz canon. Their sound has a fresh, contemporary appeal: an eclectic audio melting pot of jazz, funk, blues, bop and electronica. 
Expect to hear a well-crafted set, taking listeners “on a journey” through hard swingers, groove-led pieces full of vibe. catchy post-bop, beautiful sax and bass-led melodies, spacious ballads, spiritual energy and expansive atmospheres. Within well-crafted, melodic writing and tight, energetic, rhythmical arrangements, there's freedom for expressive solos and intuitive, group-led improvisation. Their debut album, Sharp Little Bones (Volumes I & II), is out now on the Ubuntu Music record label.
