Alan Barnes (http://www.alanbarnesjazz.com) has more awards and accolades to his credit than perhaps any other UK based musician. First call player for a host of top British ensembles and recording sessions - this guy really has earned his jazz stripes. Alan’s playing swerves from an edgy bebop lineage to the melodically passionate and he can achieve that on any of the instruments he plays - tenor, alto and baritone saxes, clarinet and bass clarinet! His humorous delivery when introducing numbers and teasing of fellow musicians is the stuff of legend. So expect a superb evening of multi-coloured jazz offerings from a doyen of British jazz.
