Alan Barnes Quintet

Friday 10 Dec 2021

Alan Barnes – Saxes

Bruce Adams – Trumpet, Cornet and Flugelhorn

This promises to be a programme full of good jazz, humour and Christmas cheer.

Alan is a regular at CJC having previously entertained us with  his Christmas Carol Project and is a multi-instrumentalist on a range of saxophones and clarinet. His anecdotes are legendary.

Bruce is a regular member of Alan’s various bands as well as fronting his own bands and guest soloist for many Big Band projects. He has toured extensively in Europe and played with Lennie Niehaus, Gerald Wilson, Patti Austin and also played in the Cuban Fire Concert with Horatio el Negra Hernandez and Giovanni Hidalgo.

 

Robin, Andrew and Matt, as well as being part of Alan’s Quintet, Septet and Octet, are key members of many other bands.
