Simon Thorpe – bass
Clarke Tracey – drums

A fitting finale to our 2018-19 Season. The always popular Alan Barnes brings his swinging sextet to the CJC. The repertoire is wide ranging and varied with classics, originals and standards. Ellington and Johnny Hodge are always included along with some Basie classics, Mingus and Monk. The three horn front line allows for interesting arranging and writing which will emphasise the bands conviction that jazz is a branch of the entertainment industry and audiences are drawn in by presentation and anecdotes.
