The Simon Latarche Quartet delighted a capacity audience at the Lost Gardens of Heligan concerts last January and have since hosted two highly acclaimed Jazz Lounge events at Old Bakery Studios (the 2nd of which was sold out). Simon and his house band have also run a number of successful Jazz Jam's at the Bakery, pulling large audiences and top-notch musicians from Cornwall and beyond.

"Mixing excellent originals by pianist Simon Latache and saxophonist/flautist Sarah McDonagh with a few well known standards - the quartet demonstrated their remarkable individual skills with a rock solid unity of purpose. Percussionist Keith Marshall and bassist Sam Norman, a formidable rhythm section, also shone on some inventive solos. The SLQ is certainly at the forefront of contemporary jazz ensembles in Cornwall, offering a special evening of accessible and rewarding jazz.... Latarche's compositions are a near perfect combination of lyricism and improvisation and the ensemble provides finely knit support to Latarche's considerable talents as a pianist."
