Simon Woolf
After a star-studded childhood career as a treble, Simon Woolf went to an opposite pole of the musical world, becoming a jazz bassist. He regularly performs with many of the top London players, notably as part of Andy Panayi's Mulligan-infIuenced quartet, as well as backing visiting Americans. He has a distinguished freelance career which includes stints with Bobby Wellins, Bill le Sage, Dave Cliff, John Critchinson, cornettist Ruby Braff and singer Weslia Whitfield.

As well as working with Andy Panayi's Quartet, he is also a regular member of bands led by pianist Peter Jacobsen and Geoff Simkins. Recordings include a trio with Harry Allen and Howard Alden and an appearance on Steve Melling's recent release. He also composes, plays piano and sousaphone, teaches jazz bass at both Trinity and Royal Colleges of Music and is a regular contributor to 'Doublebassist' magazine.
