Autumn Riches at The Other Palace

Tuesday October 24


Alec Dankworth’s Spanish Accents featuring the flamenco dancing of Jesus Olmeda

The spirit, fragrances and above all the sounds and music of Adalucia are transported, for this compelling Tuesday party night, to Palace Street

The 2016 winner of the British Jazz Awards, Alec Dankworth leads an all star line up, sharing  his long-standing love of all things Spanish which has provided the inspiration for these compelling musical arrangements – Spanish Accents.

The music of all time greats including Pat Matheney, Chick Corea, even Rodrigo are reinvented alongside traditional folk songs and originals in flamenco rhythms creating a wonderful and genuinely Spanish world.

The intensity of the music will be highlighted by  flamenco dancing on the Studio stage.

A heady mix of top British players create this passionate and exciting Spanish Accents music, with Alec Dankworth - double bass leading the ensemble, supported by the youngest of the continuing Dankworth generation Emily Dankworth – vocals.

Chris Garrick – violin

Tori Freestone – saxophones

Phil Robson  - guitar

Demi Garcia  - percussion

Spanish tinged jazz full of colourful and imaginative arrangements plus sparkling playing from all concerned. A triumph for Dankworth and his highly talented team.” – The Jazz Mann
