I was thrilled to be making my debut as a band leader at London’s famous ‘Jazz @ Pizza Express’ jazz club on Monday, 25th May.
On show was part of my Celebrating Blue Note series of concerts, showcasing the well-known and less common pieces from the Blue Note cannon. We opened with Bobby Timms’ ‘Moanin’ (recorded and made famous by Art Blakey’s Jazz Messengers) and featured Blue Note music composed & recorded by John Coltrane, Horace Silver, Miles Davis, Monk and standards such as ‘Summertime’ which was recorded on one of the first Blue Note albums by soprano saxophonist, Sidney Bechet.
