Alan Barnes & David Newton Duo
40 years together

Two of the UK’s greatest award winning jazz musicians, Alan Barnes and David Newton, launch their new album
at The Other Palace, in celebration of continuing to play wonderful music together for 40 years.
 

Alan Barnes is one of the Uk’s most popular all time great jazz masters – playing alto and baritone saxophones; clarinet and bass clarinet – voted best saxophone 2016 British Jazz Awards.
 

David Newton is the UK’s most highly regarded and record breaking award winning pianist – 13 times winner of Best Pianist in the British Jazz Awards.

These multiple award winners cover a vast repertoire from Louis Armstrong to Chick Corea and play with an empathy that can only come with long experience. They have developed a telepathic sympathy which only playing together for many years can bring.  The emphasis in their duo performance will be, as always, on swinging, accessibility and interplay. Expect a hugely entertaining programme of straight ahead jazz flawlessly played and interspersed with lots of anecdotes and peppered with humour.

“Barnes, plays hard, urban post-bop and infuses it with so much passion and energy you could believe it was minted on the spot” - John Walters, The Guardian

“If you like Bill Evans, Art Tatum and Errol Garner, wait till hear and be amazed by David NewtonThe Hoste of Jazz
