The Felonious Monks

The Felonious Monks is an award winning 12 piece ensemble which embraces jazz and early music!
Our premiere took place in August 2013 as part of the manchester jazz festival for which we were
commissioned to write 50 minutes of music. This has now been recorded with generous support
from a grant by the RNCM research fund and is available below.

The Felonious Monks were commissioned by manchester jazz festival 2013 with funds from ACE and
PRS for Music Foundation

Review: Tony Dudley-Evans (The Jazz Breakfast)
"The blending of the timbres of medieval music and bebop worked well and there was some impressive
soloing from Steve Waterman on trumpet and the leader Mike Hall on saxophone."

Review: The Ring Modulator
"This concept could easily not have worked, but Hall and Rogers pulled it off with aplomb, clearly having
given a great deal of thought to the involved arrangements, as well as putting a lot of time into rehearsal."
"The evening was a true privilege to experience."
