Drawing on his highly praised album The Art Trip, Alan Barnes conveys the agony and ecstasy of the life and music of Art Pepper. An admirer of Art since a teenager, Alan developed a deep understanding of this talented but personally flawed man. Even with the recurring addiction to drugs and alcohol, Art managed to repeatedly produce exhilarating music.
That Alan and his musicians can give us the emotion and feeling of the kaleidoscope of humour, bathos and triumph of Art's life, is testimony to their own talents.
Expect an evening, dare we say, ‘peppered’ with Alan's ever-popular playing and humour.
