About Jamie

Jamie is a respected professional trumpeter available for live & studio work. Jazz/Big Band/Swing/Reggae/Dance Bands/Horn Sections etc..
Public liability insurance of £5 million

It all began at Primary school at the age of 9 when Jamie was offered brass lessons at his school, he opted for the Trumpet but to start was lent a cornet from the school as that was what was available at the time. He quickly took to the cornet, and began to study for his grades with his teacher. He continued along the ‘traditional method’, learning the ropes in his local brass band at Porthywaen, and eventually became principle cornet in the Youth band and progressed to the adult ‘silver’ band. When Jamie was 13, he formed his first band ‘The JB Quintet’ and the following year recorded his first CD ‘No Animals Were Harmed. After many years of competing, performing and parading with the brass bands he left the brass band world and joined a big band that rehearsed on Monday nights in Wrexham, the famous ‘The Bill Basey Big Band’. Jamie later met saxophonist Liam Byrne at ‘Alexanders Jazz Club’ in Chester and being the two ‘younger’ guys on the scene got together to start their own band together, which became ‘The Brownfield Byrne Quintet’ or ‘BBQ’. In 2016 Jamie formed his own group, The Jamie Brownfield Quartet”. They recorded their first CD ‘Go Down To New Orleans’ in 2016 and we were awarded a place of the ‘Jazz North’ scheme in 2017, allowing them to tour the North of the country with extra funding. Other than his own groups, he regularly appears as a guest with house rhythm sections and clubs, festivals, shows etc. Variety is key and he performs in horn sections for weddings, parties & concerts with larger pop groups and I am regularly in the studio for session work working with various talented artists. Jamie has now been playing professionally now for many years touring the jazz festival & club circuits in the UK & Europe, as well as backing vocalists, TV and session work. In 2012 Jamie was awarded 1st place in the ‘Rising Star’ category of the British Jazz Awards.In 2017 British Airways launched their new service from Heathrow direct to New Orleans and I was lucky enough to be chosen by John Cleary & Yolanda Brown to perform onboard the aircraft at 36,000ft during the crossing along with Nicole Scherzinger. There are too many to list but some other past engagements include : Performing for the Royal Princess of Jordan’s Wedding Leeds First Direct Arena (Jane McDonald) Silverstone’s F1 Grand Prix after party to 25,000 people London Jazz Festival The Savoy Hotel, London Festivals in Marseille, Ischia, New Orleans, Sveti Stefan Montenegro, Florence, Brittany, Enkhuizen Shameless Channel 4 BBC’s The Flying Scotsman Downton Abbey’s Highclare Castle Blackpool Tower Ballroom The Arts Club, Mayfair
