    Since 1980 Clark has run his own Groups - the most successful of which has been his Quintets. In keeping with his approach since 2000 - and that of his mentor Art Blakey - Clark is giving talented young musicians a platform to grow and become more widely recognised. Hence - for this Celebration - Clark has formed a brand new quintet featuring 18 year old trumpeter ALEX RIDOUT (winner of BBC Young Jazz Musician of the Year in 2017) and 17 year old wunderkid SEAN PAYNE on alto.

    On keys will be ELLIOTT SANSOM and on double bass it will be JAMES OUSTON.

    JOE MUDELE'S BLUE ROOM SEVEN Led by COLIN HICKMAN

    "Mudele's Blue Room first opened it doors on Garrick Street 29th November 1952 with Joe's group playing Monday, Friday and Saturday evenings - and packed every evening - until eventually it was taken over by the owner of Studio 51.

    In the late 1940s Joe also played in the Dankworth Seven.

    Hence - before Joe died on 7th March 2014 he and Colin talked about setting up this evening at Bexley to commemorate the event. Colin has done so and it will now be performed regularly in loving remembrance of Joe Mudele who played double bass at this Club for over 20 years - subsequently taking on the running and organisation of the Club 15 years ago - together with his wife, Jan, who makes certain that Bexley Jazz Club remains one of the best in the country.

    As always Colin Hickman will lead - having made all of the Arrangements for the following superb lineup.

    Enrico Tomasso - Trumpet
    Michael Coates - Alto
    David Black - Tenor
    Colin Hickman - Baritone
    John Pearce - Keys
    Paul Morgan - Double Bass
    Bobby Worth - Drums
