Jonny Mansfield’s Elftet

Jonny Mansfield’s Elftet was formed in September 2015, and is an extension of JMQ (his quartet) who have been playing together for over three years. His original compositions are influenced by those of Vince Mendoza, Marius Neset and Stravinsky, as well as songwriters such as Norah Jones and James Taylor. The larger ensemble offers a wide palette of textures and colours, from traditional four horn writing to more contemporary classical music with the use of strings and vibraphone. More recently Elftet performed their debut gig at the 606 Club, played in a masterclass with Dave Holland and received the Tebbutt Exhibition award for an outstanding performance.

The line up consists of:

Ella Hohnen Ford – Vocals & Flute

James Davison – Trumpet and Flugel

Tom Smith – Alto,Tenor Sax and Flute

George Millard – Tenor Sax and Bass Clarinet

Rory Ingham – Trombone

Dom Ingham – Violin, vocals

Laura Armstrong – Cello

Oliver Mason – Guitar

Jonny Mansfield – Vibraphone

Will Harris – Bass

Boz Martin-Jones – Drums

‘Really beautiful music’ – Jorge Rossy

‘As a professional musician, I appreciate the high level of craft exhibited by Jonny Mansfield’s Elftet. But more importantly, as a human being I bask in the beautiful feeling this music gives me. I will return to it again and again. Thank you, Jonny & Co.!’

-Joe Locke
