Alan Barnes with the David Newton Trio
Alan Barnes and David Newton have been playing together for 43 years. 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. David is one of the greatest solo jazz pianists this country has ever produced and Alan plays multi reed instruments - all the saxes, clarinet and bass clarinet. They have developed an empathy and telepathic sympathy which only playing together for many years can bring.
Tonight they are joined by young virtuoso bass player Adam King and drummer Steve Brown who has long been established one of the first call jazz drummers in this country.
The emphasis, as always, is 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.
Alan and David’s latest album Ask Me Now is available on Woodville Records.
A bar serving beer, wine and soft drinks will be available.
