    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.

    The evening promises to be quite some Celebration !

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

    FULLY BOOKED

    "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

Her style is so flexible that 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 surprises.

    Ticket Price: 
    £15

    “Ken Peplowski is arguably the greatest living jazz clarinetist” Russell Davies, BBC2 August 2013

    After a year of college, Ken joined the Tommy Dorsey Orchestra under the direction of Buddy Morrow. “Buddy heard me with my quartet at a Cleveland jazz festival along with Teddy Wilson’s trio and the Dorsey band, and made an offer right then and there for me to not only play lead alto, but to have a feature spot on the clarinet with the rhythm section. It was a great ‘road-school’ – we learned the discipline that goes with playing one-nighters every day for 48 weeks out of the year, and Buddy was a great, very generous bandleader.”

    Peplowski met Sonny Stitt while on the road with the Dorsey band, and studied with him. “He was, and is, an inspiration to all of of us who make a living ‘on the road’ – I’ve never heard anybody play with such amazing consistency as Sonny, through all kinds of settings.”

    In 1984, Benny Goodman came out of retirement and put together a new band, hiring Ken on tenor saxophone.

    Ken is joined this evening by JULIAN MARC STRINGLE - Master Clarinettist and said by the late John Dankworth to be the best to emerge in British Jazz for decades.

    The evening is completed by the simply superb CRAIG MILVERTON TRIO

    Monday 5th June 2017 at 8:00pm
    Ticket Price: 
    £12

    ALAN BARNES is a prolific international performer, composer, arranger, bandleader and touring soloist. He is best known for his work on clarinet, alto and baritone sax, where he combines a formidable virtuosity with a musical expression and collaborative spirit that have few peers. His range and brilliance have made him a “first call” for studio and live work since his precocious arrival on the scene more than thirty years ago.
    Throughout his career to date Alan has accumulated over 25 British Jazz Awards and twice been nominated as the BBC Jazz Musician of the Year.

    This evening is a very happy combination of front line and the superb ROB BARRON on keyboard.
    DAVE GREEN will be on Double Bass and JOSH MORRISON will be on drums.
