Part of EFG London Jazz Festival
Jazz icon, Count Basie, is one of the greatest bandleaders of all times. He was the arbiter of the Big Band swing sound and his unique style of fusing blues and jazz established swing as a predominant music style.
With evergreen writing including One O’Clock Jump, Lil’ Darling, Jumpin’ At The Woodside and possibly his most famous April In Paris, Basie changed the jazz landscape and shaped mid-20th century popular music duly earning the title “King of Swing”.
One of the UK’s most popular all time great jazz masters, award-winning Alan Barnes –playing alto and baritone saxophones, clarinet and bass clarinet ( voted best saxophone 2016 British Jazz Awards) leads a sextet of the jazz greats playing the music of Count Basie.
George Hogg – trumpet, Robert Fowler- tenor saxophone and clarinet, Robin Aspland – piano, Adam King – double bass & Matt Home – drums, complete the line up.
“Barnes infuses his music with so much passion and energy you could believe it was minted on the spot”- The Guardian
