Two of the great multi award winning jazz icons of the U.K. scene, Mark Nightingale on trombone and Alan Barnes on clarinet and saxophones, come together, with the Graham Harvey Trio, to play the music of one of, if not the greatest and most loved composers of 20th Century popular music, George Gershwin
The combination of Gershwin’s memorable melodies, including gems S’Wonderful, Strike Up The Band, Somebody Loves Me, I Got Rhythm, Lady Be Good, Fascinating Rhythm and so many more, with Mark and Alan’s inventive arrangements, never fails to delight.
The very best of creative swinging jazz in the 21st Century, with love and respect for a 20th Century composing icon, make for a sunny summer evening on Dean Street

“Mark Nightingale never puts a foot wrong, producing a string of solos which are constantly inventive while keeping your foot tapping”—Tony Augarde, Crescendo & Jazz Magazine
“Alan Barnes stylistic range is quite phenomenal… He has a wonderful capacity for suggesting a given style without actually imitating anyone” .
-Dave Gelly, Masters Of The Jazz Saxophone.
