Alan Barnes & David Newton Quartet
Alan Barnes – Saxophones & Clarinet Dave Newton – Piano
Adam King – Bass Steve Brown – Drums
Alan Barnes and David Newton have been playing together for over 40 years. These multi award-winners cover a vast repertoire from Louis Armstrong to Chick Corea and play with an empathy that can only come with long experience. The emphasis, as always, is on swinging, accessibility and interplay. Expect a hugely entertaining programme of straight ahead jazz flawlessly played and interspersed with lots of anecdotes.
Alan Barnes is a prolific international performer, composer, arranger, bandleader and touring soloist. He is best known for his work on clarinet, alto and baritone sax, where he combines a formidable virtuosity with a musical expression and collaborative spirit that have few peers.
David Newton has been voted best Jazz Pianist in the British Jazz awards for the thirteenth time and has been made a Fellow of Leeds College of Music.
