“There really is nobody quite like Digby Fairweather, a man who has long been – and more significantly remains – a force for our music, a winner of many new friends for the cause and, best of all, a jazz musician who continues to prove that being true to ones own direction – that voice-forging faith – can build a career that can last a lifetime”

Jim Simpson, Director, Big Bear Music, 2010
“One of our great jazzmen – and the UK’s leading man-about jazz – Digby Fairweather has assuredly taken the place vacated by Humphrey Lyttelton as Britain’s leading jazz personality!”

Freddie Gavita, Trumpeter, Ronnie Scott All Stars, 2015
“Having seen Digby play as a youngster, I was greatly moved by the incredible warmth of his music. He plays the purest melodies that hit you right in the heart, something that is missing from a lot of players these days. He has succeeded in creating a personal style of playing which is very listenable to without compromising quality, something which I aspire to because of him! He is a true British jazz legend”

John Cooper, Acrobat Records 2020
“We are proud to be part of the legend”

Sir John Dankworth CBE
“Digby is one of our most articulate jazzmen in both his words and his music. Whatever he says or whatever he plays is of great interest to the world of jazz”

Michael Dynan, The Stage
“Digby is one of the best ambassadors jazz could have”

Blues and Roots Magazine
“Digby Fairweather is a superb cornettist who will knock your lights out every time he hits high C!”

Humphrey Lyttelton
“Much spoken of and justifiably – and a good friend!”

Warren Vache Junior
“The sweetest cat around and a marvellous player”

Ruby Braff
“He knows what he’s doing!”
