Gifted tenor sax player Mark Crooks (woodwind star of the John Wilson Orchestra) joins the Chris Ingham trio to present Getz: A Musical Portrait. A widely-praised interpretation of the highlights of lyrical genius of US tenor saxophonist, Stan Getz, the evening will feature material from Getz’s repertoire from the 1940s to the 1980s. The music reflects Getz’s dedication to keeping his art fresh and vital with rarely-played gems and curiosities nestling among well-known titles.
