Alan Barnes + 11

  • Berkhamsted Jazz Civic Centre, 161-163 High Street Berkhamsted, England, HP4 3HD United Kingdom (map)


 Alan Barnes is 60 this year! Art Pepper recorded a classic in 1959 called Art Pepper +11 with arrangements by Marty Paice and featuring Art Pepper as the main soloist throughout. With this in mind, Alan commissioned Mark Nightingale to write 13 charts for 12 piece big band of tunes written in 1959, including Boogie Stop Shuffle (Mingus), Naima (Coltrane), Blowin’ the Blues Away (Silver), Dreamsville (Mancini), As Catch Can (Mulligan) Little Rootie Tootie (Monk), Single Petal of a Rose (Ellington) and A Felicidade ( Jobim)
 
These arrangements are pure fire, and need to be heard to be believed! Alan himself features on alto and baritone saxes, clarinet and bass clarinet with an all star UK band.
