Keeping Music Live
Saturday 27 January at 7.30 p.m.
playing Ellington, Strayhorn, Gershwin.
Swanage Jazz Club is proud to present two of the busiest and most talented musicians on the British jazz scene, reprising the duo they first played as students and recorded so successfully in the 1990s.
Alan Barnes playing style draws on many of the swing and modern jazz greats but probably owes most to Johnny Hodges, Ellington's long-time alto player, and Charlie Parker. He plays all the saxophones and clarinets, so expect some unusual treatments of tunes usually associated with specific musicians and instruments.
David Newton is simply the most rhythmically sophisticated and lyrically creative pianist on the British mainstream jazz scene. He, like Alan, has worked with a multitude of British and American musicians in his career.
The two of them have a chemistry that comes from thirty-odd years of regularly working together in many line-ups.
This is jazz chamber music at its best - and it swings!
