Dave Wickins’ approach to drumming is unique. His playing is both spontaneous and disciplined, combining the creativity of free improvisation with strong reference to form and structure. Dave, who originally studied with Philly Joe Jones, plays in Kirk Lightsey’s European trio, with Joe Lee Wilson and with Peter Churchill. He also runs the Glamorgan jazz summer school.
