London Jazz Festival Preview

Posted: Wednesday August 16, 2017

I had the good fortune to be invited by JBGB Events Music Management to the preview for their events for The London Jazz Festival at The Other Palace (formerly St. James Theatre ), 12 Palace St, London, SW1E 5JA this November.  John Billett has an excellent programme including Scott Hamilton, Alan Barnes, Dave Newton and Dixie Mix.  At the preview he had a superb pick-up quartet on stage comprising Liane Carroll vocal and piano, Simon Nelson trumpet and the saxophones of Alan Barnes and the wonderful Alexander Bone.

Alexander is only 20 years of age and in 2014 was crowned the first BBC Jazz Musician of the Year.  In 2015 he was a soloist on the Last Night of the Proms and last year at the British Jazz Awards was voted winner of the Rising Star Award.  He received very generous applause by those present at the launch party and indeed many nods of approval from the superb Alan Barnes.  He will be appearing with Dave Newton at the London Jazz Festival.  A show not to be missed.
