Tues 13 November £12/£8
BENN CLATWORTHY with VIV RODD TRIO
LA-based Benn Clatworthy is a truly impressive tenor player who Ronnie Scott rated as one of the best UK players that he had ever heard. ‘While twenty years in Los Angeles seem to have had little effect Benn Clatworthy’s Bow Bells speech, his tenor sax playing has acquired strong US characteristics, not least a tough personal tone and a wide emotional range that extends from ballad tenderness to gladiatorial torrents of controlled aggression at fast tempos.’ Chris Lee ‘Some of the most emotive and creative jazz this side of Sonny Rollins’. Edinburgh Evening News. ‘Astounds everyone’. London Observer
Tues 20 November £12/£8
This exciting new vocal Latin-Jazz band starts with the premise that all players should sing and all singers should play.
