Barnes plays Basie

Jazz icon, Count Basie, is one of the greatest bandleaders of all times. He was the arbiter of the big-band swing sound and his unique style of fusing blues and jazz established swing as a predominant music style

With evergreen writing including “One O’Clock Jump”, “Lil’ Darlin”, “Jump- in’ At The Woodside” and possibly his most famous “April in Paris”, Basie changed the jazz landscape and shaped mid-20th century popular music, duly earning the title “King of Swing”.

One of the UK’s most popular all time great jazz masters, award winning Alan Barnes –playing alto and baritone saxophones, clarinet and bass clarinet (voted best saxophone 2016 British Jazz Awards) leads a sextet of UK jazz greats playing the music of Count Basie

George Hogg – trumpet 

Robert Fowler – tenor saxophone & clarinet 

Robin Ashland – piano 

Adam King – double bass  

Matt Home – drums 

 

Performance starts at 8pm

Tickets: £30, £25 & £20
