Surrey-based Brian White has been leading various bands since the 1950s. The Ragtimers, co-led with cornetist Alan Gresty, was the hit of JITC 2008. Brian’s CJC debut in January 2010 with the King Jazz band was extremely popular both for the quality of its music and its friendly and humorous stage presence; the calls to bring the band back were irresistible.
Many of Brian’s bands have been inspired by major jazz figures. King Jazz is inspired by the 1940s recordings by bands jointly led by Mezz Mezzrow and Sidney Bechet on Mezzrow’s own King Jazz record label.
Tonight's line-up will be Brian on clarinet, Goff Dubber – clarinet and soprano sax, Alan Dandy – piano, Mike Godwin – bass, Colin Miller - drums.
