I met Harry through Domestic Sound Cupboard. He plays cornet and had joined the band a few months before me. It doesn't take long to spot that Jazz features prominently in Harry’s record collection. What also becomes quickly apparent when you watch Harry play is quite how engrossed he is in his instrument? He’s statuesque as he plays, motionless apart from his fingers, which are ever-moving even when his instrument is silent, as if he has more ideas than he has breath.
Harry front his own project ‘The Iceman Furniss Quintet’: “Fronted by Harry Furniss nicknamed Iceman, a cornet player who is forging ahead with some of the most musically interesting musicians in Bristol to produce fully improvised, uncompromising and soulful punk art jazz.”
