Alan Barnes saxophones David Newton piano
£20.00 (£18.00 concs; £5.00 under 35)
These multiple award winners have been playing duets together for 40 years, covering a vast repertoire from Louis Armstrong to Chick Corea. They play with an empathy that can only come with long experience. David is one of the greatest solo jazz pianists this country has ever produced and Alan plays all the saxes, clarinet and bass clarinet.
The emphasis, as always, is on swinging, accessibility and interplay. Expect a hugely entertaining programme of straight ahead jazz flawlessly played and interspersed with lots of anecdotes and peppered with humour.
(Alan Barnes) ‘Barnes plays music that was radical 50 years ago but he infuses it with so much passion and energy you could believe it was minted on the spot, which is always part of the story with jazz.’ The Guardian
(David Newton) ‘Urbane and resourceful’ The Observer
Please note there is a £1.50 administration charge per transaction
