Bobby’s got sax ap­peal

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Tonight’s Tv -

FOR the last con­cert in the cur­rent sea­son, Peter­bor­ough Jazz Club wel­comes the fa­mil­iar sight and sound of sax­o­phon­ist Bobby Wellins.

Bobby is a mas­ter of the tenor saxo and bedrock of the Bri­tish jazz scene, his unique lyrical and in­ven­tive play­ing is per­fectly suited to the tightly crafted ar­range­ments made fa­mous in the bands fea­tur­ing Clif­ford Brown in the 1950s.

Bobby is joined on the front line by Gary Ka­vanagh whose beau­ti­ful melodic im­pro­vi­sa­tions make him one of Europe’s best and most in­ter­est­ing trum­pet play­ers. Roy Hil­ton’s im­pec­ca­ble comp­ing and ex­quis­ite solo­ing are al­ways a joy to lis­ten to, whilst the drive and play­fulnes of the drums could only be the ‘ev­er­green’ Spike Wells.

The rhythm sec­tion is com­pleted by the soul­ful and in-de­mand dou­ble bass of Ju­lian Bury.

The con­cert takes place at the Great North­ern Ho­tel, in Peter­bor­ough, on Fri­day, June 11.

En­try costs £13 from 7.30pm.
