    KAREN SHARP - SAXOPH0NES & CLARINET makes a very welcome return to Bexley together with :

    With remarkably little fuss, Karen Sharp rose from newcomer in Humphrey Lyttelton's final band to being voted top tenor saxophonist in 2010's British Jazz awards. Her style is so flexible she can move effortlessly from an old standard like "Bye Bye Baby" to her own ethereal title track, adjusting the sound through subtle shifts of tone and attack. Humph persuaded her to add baritone to her tenor, and she is equally impressive on that. Karen is indisputedly A-team, and her material full of pleasant surprises

    This evening Karen is accompanied by :

    SIMON WALLACE/keys.....ADAM KING/double bass........MATT HOME/drums

    MARLENE VER PLANCK SINGS TO US THIS EVENING BACKED BY HER TRIO :

    She has the kind of skill which makes her voice a fourth instrument onstage. Marlene clearly loves what she does and still, after all these years, projects the young, unjaded quality of a performer who still wants to share.

    We are so fortunate to be able to share an evening with MARLENE VerPLANCK - the Ultimate Professional.

    Such talent and skill demands top class backup - therefore - this evening Marlene's Trio is :

    JOHN PEARCE/keyboards - PAUL MORGAN/double bass - BOBBY WORTH/drums
