Alan Barnes & David Newton
Alan Barnes and David Newton have been playing duets together for over 40 years. With these two multi-award winners you can expect a hugely entertaining programme of straight ahead jazz flawlessly played and interspersed with lots of anecdotes.
Alex Clarke Trio
Known for her flexiblity and open-minded attitude towards jazz, Alex enjoys performing a variety of genres from New Orleans to bebop. With a youthful, intuitive approach, Alex's swinging, melodic sound is reminiscent of Ben Webster and Lester Young, with influences of early Phil Woods and Sonny Stitt.
Art Themen Trio
A stalwart of the British jazz scene for more than 50 years Art's saxophone style originally owed much to the influence of Dexter Gordon and Sonny Rollins, but later influences included such disparate saxophonists as Coleman Hawkins, Evan Parker and John Coltrane. Expect mischief and twinkly charm from a genuine treasure of British jazz. Tonight joined by Bill Coleman (bs),Dave Newton (kybd)
