This is hard swing and bebop at its very best. Simon won the 'Rising Star' category of the BBC jazz awards in 2007 and is one of the most energetic and dynamic tenor saxophonists in Britain. Often likened to Tubby Hayes, Simon's appearances at jazz clubs across the country have led to rave reviews and unconditional acclaim and tonight he is joined by John Horler on piano, Tim Wells on double bass and drummer Trevor Tomkins.

Nigel Price Nigel Price

Al Cherry has had to pull out of this Sunday and his gig will be rescheduled at a later date. Standing in at short notice is Nigel Price, an award-winning guitarist who is regularly seen hosting the late night jam sessions at Ronnie Scott's, and has recently completed a mammoth UK tour that has taken in virtually every provincial jazz club in the country. He attracts huge acclaim wherever he plays and is rightly considered to be one of the finest exponents of his instrument in recent years. He is steeped in the history of bebop, Blue Note grooves and soulful artistry, and is joined tonight by Simon Carter on piano, Conor Chaplin on double bass and drummer Emiliano Caroselli.
