    HENRY ARMBURG-JENNINGS on Trumpet has a ferocious technique coupled with a true passion for jazz - which have made him one of the most sought after trumpet players in the country - and one who plays with such grace and maturity.

    FRANK HARRISON - despite his young years is often almost frighteningly reminiscent of Art Tatum at the height of his powers !

  • ROBIN ASPLAND TRIO

    Date: 
    Monday 4th May 2015 at 8:30pm
    Ticket Price: 
    £10

    ROBIN ASPLAND is an outstandingly accomplished jazz pianist who has played with - among others - Steve Grossman, Bobby Watson, Eddie Henderson, the Dankworth Generation Band, Cleon Laine, Ronnie Scott, Pete King, Kenny Wheeler, Dave O'Higgins, Georgie Fame as well as in the film "The Talented mr Ripley".

    DAVE CHAMBERLAIN on double bass - who says his principal interest is in making a clean, straight ahead blues edged sound with some modern elements. Dave is also currently involved with the Back to Basie Orchestra and 100 Years of Jazz in 99 Minutes.
    It is surely music to our ears when he says "For me a musical performance is mainly about communication and entertainment"

    WINSTON CLIFFORD - Drummer and (when he feels like it) scat singer is one of the greatest exponents of his instruments on the jazz scene. He plays with elegance and refinement - but can really fire up those drums whenever needed. It is a real experience to watch and hear him.

Derek's a great musician and all round Showman who brings in the crowd wherever he plays. With him this evening will be :

    MARTIN SHAW - One of this country's top jazz trumpet soloists in an extraordinary range of settings - from Big Band to Quartet - from Cutting Edge Jazz to Pop and Funk.
    In 2001 Martin was appointed Professor of Jazz Trumpet at the Birmingham Conservertoire. He is a stunning musician at the top of his game.

    DAVE NEWTON - during his Renfrewshire upbringing Dave Newton was immersed in the piano sounds of Peterson, Tatum, Garner. After establishing himself on the Scottish Jazz scene Dave met up with his old room mate from Leeds College of Music - Alan Barnes - who persuaded him to move South and the rest - as they say - is history.
    Dave was voted best jazz pianist in the British Jazz Awards for the 13th time in 2014 - and in 2013 was made a Fellow of the Leeds College of Music.

    The rythm section is completed by that fat-toned & thoughtful Bassist GEOFF GASCOYNE - also Composer, Arranger and Producer.

    SEBASTIAAN DE KROM is quite simply one of the best drummers in the business - his knowledge of jazz is second to none - a stix man extraordinaire !
