Alan Barnes Quartet
12 January @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm£5 – £10
ALAN BARNES QUARTET kicks of the new year jazz season on Thursday 12 Jan at 8pm
Band lineup: Alan Barnes – Alto Sax; Kate Williams – Piano; Steve Watts – Bass; Les Cyrkel – Drums;
“A performance by the Alan Barnes Quartet is world class. The leader is one of few saxophonists in this country capable of playing convincing bebop jazz as well as all other styles.”
“Like Peter King, Barnes is steeped in the language of bop, but is such a consummate stylist that his playing tends to buck any argument that his musical approach is conservative or out of step with the times. Whether on alto, baritone or tenor, Barnes’ melodic sense bypasses the usual scale-running clichés that pepper the playing of lesser bop disciples.” (Peter Marsh, BBC Music Review).
“Barnes, plays music that was radical 50 years ago – hard, urban post-bop – but he infuses it with so much passion and energy you could believe it was minted on the spot, which is always part of the story with jazz.” (John L. Walters, The Guardian).
Doors open at 7pm, music starts at 8pm. Please book a ticket in advance.
