The Jazz, the whole Jazz and nothing but the Jazz (except maybe some swing!)
The line-up for the next concert is now confirmed and it really is the ‘A Team’!
The big news is that on Tuesday December 1st, we will be welcoming Pete Long and James Pearson back to the ballroom at the Langport Arms Hotel. However, this time they will be accompanied by two more musicians from the top of the profession.
We’re adding bass and drums to James on keyboard and Pete on clarinet to create a potent mix of toe-tapping jazz and swing classics – an entire evening of your favourite numbers - from Cole Porter and Irving Berlin to Dizzy Gillespie and Duke Ellington.
On bass we are proud to present Laurence Cottle. Laurence is an internationally renowned bass player. His playing credits include such luminaries as: Alan Parsons, Clark Tracey, Brian Eno, Dick Heckstall –Smith, Bill Bruford and Eric Clapton and his compositions have featured in TV shows as diverse as Big Brother, Emmerdale, Hetty Wainthropp investigates, The Oprah Winfrey Show and Friends.
On drums we are very chuffed to include the rising star that is Ed Richardson. Ed holds the record for being the youngest drummer ever to play with Ronnie Scott’s Jazz orchestra. Since then he has had a sparkling career and, despite his youth, he is now well established as part of the professional jazz circuit.
This sort of music is an opportunity for the band to let their hair down, so expect musical fireworks!
We’ll confirm the play list as soon as we have all the details.
This will be a night of unadulterated Jazz, Jazz Jazz. The best jazz music played by the best jazz players. We defy your toes to stay still!
