Jazz on a Summers Afternoon: Alan Barnes/Dave Newton/Andrew Cleyndert Trio
July 24 @ 1:00 pm - 7:00 pm£20
Three of the biggest names in British jazz come together to set this afternoon of music off to a terrific start. Between them they have won an astonishing number of major jazz awards.
Clarinet player and saxophonist Alan Barnes is a prolific international performer, composer, arranger, bandleader and touring soloist. He has made over thirty albums as leader and co-leader alone, and the list of his session and side-man work includes Bjork, Bryan Ferry, Jools Holland and Jamie Cullum. He has received over 25
British Jazz Awards and has twice been made BBC Jazz Musician of the Year.
Pianist and composer Dave Newton shared a room with Alan Barnes when they both studied at the Leeds College of Music in the late 1970s and they have worked together regularly ever since, making several albums together. He has also recorded and performed with several other British and international greats. He has been voted Best Jazz Pianist in the British Jazz Awards no less than 16 times.
Bass player Andrew Cleyndert was a member of the Ronnie Scott Sextet and Quartet, and toured with them in the Caribbean, the Middle East and Scott’s club in London. Since then he has worked with many British and American stars, including Alan Barnes. He has been nominated for the British Jazz Awards every year since they started.
Together the three will make an unmissable sound.
