Campus West, Welwyn Garden City at 8 pm.
Chris Biscoe returns to Herts Jazz in an exploration of the musical legacies of the extraordinary bassist, composer and bandleader Charles Mingus, and of reeds virtuoso Eric Dolphy. The band features music written by Eric Dolphy and tunes from Oliver Nelson, Fats Waller, Monk and Mingus which he recorded.
The band takes a swinging, high-energy approach which has drawn an enthusiastic response from audiences everywhere.
Chris's quartet played such a fantastic gig at Herts Jazz two years ago that they released the recording on CD – possibly the only "Live at Campus West" CD available!
Chris Biscoe – alto sax and alto clarinet, Henry Lowther – trumpet and flugelhorn, Larry Bartley - Bass, Stu Butterfield – Drums
Tickets: JUST £5 for students and under-21s; £11 advance; £13 at the door; £8 members.
