Verified profile

At the age of 13 Jack started to go to the his local Jazz night in Alsager, at the Horseshoe. Sitting in for a few numbers with various professional musicians from all over the country. At the age of 14 he started playing with the local Jazz bands, and then went on the land a full time gig with a touring Jazz band. He also began his own band ‘The Cheshire Cats’, with some of the finest musicians the northwest had to offer. At the age of 14 Jack and his family made the decision that he should leave school to pursue a full time career in music. He became home schooled to allow more flexibility for his touring. He has never looked back since! Now Jack is a professional touring musician, drummer and percussionist. His newest venture is delving into the world of percussion and bongos.

“Jack Cotterill has all the attributes of a great jazz drummer. He has a deep knowledge of jazz history, is a master of dynamics, and is very much a team player. Most importantly though, he swings like mad”

Like any truly great jazz musician, and he’s certainly played with a few, Jack is not only naturally very talented and fully in command and control of the language of jazz but is also versatile and flexible, able to respond instantly to what happens around him and to offer the perfect accompaniment. I have heard Jack adapt beautifully to the intricacies and dialogues of a piano trio, play truly thrilling, headlong swing behind top class Dixieland and swing bands and play New Orleans street beats with an all too rare passion and understanding. Jack is sadly something of a rarity among jazz drummers these days but it’s always a delight to see and hear as talented a player as he avoid the grand standing solos and tricks of all too many of his contemporaries and instead concentrate on swinging hard and bringing out the best in the rest of his band mates."-
