Christian Brewer was a big hit on his previous CJC appearances: a 2004 debut with his quartet and a 2006 quintet performance featuring vibraphone player Jim Hart. Tonight he brings a recently formed quartet, with perhaps the finest rhythm section in the UK.
Built on a career that has taken him to many UK and European festivals, Christianís music is heavily influenced by bop and Latin jazz. The repertoire features a mixture of standards and original tunes, upbeat numbers and ballads. Christianís own playing is lyrical, sometimes fast and technical, but never over elaborate.
Tonight he plays with Mark Edwards - piano, Andy Cleyndert Ė bass and Spike Wells - drums.
All meetings start at 7.45pm - doors open at 6.30pm
