The irrepressible Mark Bassey is one of the finest trombonists on the UK jazz scene and is just as gifted as arranger, bandleader and teacher.
The evening will feature music from the excellent CD, ‘ Bassey Plays Basie’, such as Jive At Five and Splanky. Mark notes that ‘’it is a selection of pieces that mean something to me personally’’; some are exact transcriptions, some are excitingly reworked.
Mark’s flamboyant trombone and Simon Savage’s sultry tenor will be ably supported by the swinging rhythm section of Terry Seabrook - piano, Dan Sheppard - bass and Alex Eberhard - drums.
Members will remember Terry’s exciting tribute to Miles Davis, at a previous performance at the Club, of music from his ‘Sketches of Miles’ album.
An evening of toe-tapping, sumptuous sounds is assured!
All meetings start at 7.45pm - doors open at 6.30pm
