    THE LEGENDARY SCOTT HAMILTON
    PERFORMING FOR THE SECOND TIME AT BEXLEY JAZZ CLUB ON
    MONDAY 18TH JANUARY 2018
    BOOKINGS NOW BEING TAKEN

    "Following a Scott Hamilton solo is like listening to a great conversationalist in full flow. First comes the

    voice, the inimitable, assured sound of his tenor saxophone, then the informal style and, finally, the amazing fluency and eloquent command of the jazz language"......Dave Gelly

    Scott Hamilton was born in Providence, Rhode Island in 1954 and, during his childhood, heard a lot of jazz through his father's extensive record collection - thus becoming acquainted with the jazz greats. The only formal music tuition he ever had was at around 8 years of age on clarinet - taking up saxophone around 8 years later. In his early 20s Scott moved to NY and met his 'champion' Eldridge and was introduced to such as Illinois Jacquet, Vic Dickenson and Jo Jones. In December 1976 Scott joined Benny Goodman for whom he continued to work until the early 80s. A year later he was signed to the Concord label, for whom he still records - now some 40 albums later.

    The 'Ronnie' for International Jazz Saxophonist of the Year in the 2007 inaugural Ronnie Scott's Jazz Awards was awarded to Scott Hamilton.

    SCOTT HAMILTON is in demand the world over - so BOOK TODAY for your place at BEXLEY, 18-01-2018.
    Scott's stellar quartet will be :

    JOHN PEARCE - keyboards..........DAVE GREEN - double bass..........STEVE BROWN - drums

    CLARK TRACEY'S QUINTET - CELEBRATING 40 YEARS IN JAZZ

    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.
