Bobby’s got sax appeal
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.
