Mornington Lockett Mornington Lockett

This gig with Mornington traditionally marks the 28-year anniversary celebrations. He is undoubtedly one of the finest tenor saxophonists this country has to offer and one of the most popular visitors to Boaters, having appeared here more times than any other guest since the gig began in 1990. Over the years he has been a member of Ronnie Scott's band, the Jim Mullen Quartet, and more recently "Celebrating the Jazz Couriers". The line up is completed by Laurence Cottle on bass, drummer Ian Thomas and pianist Simon Carter.
