ALAN BARNES - The multi Award Winning Alan Barnes is back with us once more with music that was radical 50 years back - hard, urban post bop - but inspired with so much passion you could believe it was minted on the spot - which is always part of the story with jazz.
With Alan this evening we are privileged to welcome Cincinnati pianist PHIL DEGREG whose main influences have been Bud Powell and Bill Evans - but Phil is equally accomplished and comfortable in a wide range of jazz styles from mainstream to bebop to Brazilian jazz. Among so many others Phil has worked with Scott Hamilton, Greg Abate, Warren Vache, Dizzy Gillespie and Rufus Reid.
On doube bass this evening will be ADAM KING aand on drums STEVE BROWN.
