Music - Jazz & Blues
Burford Jazz  presents Alan Barnes' Fourtet
Alan Barnes has received more awards for best instrumental jazzer, best act, best CD etc. than pretty well any other UK jazz player. He’s a consummate musician and a very funny orator - some say he could have just as easily made a great career in comedy had he not decided to devote his considerable talents to playing all the reed instruments (perhaps not the oboe) with great skill and passion or composing or creating an highly successful record label. He is a polymath but our suggestion is that he seems to enjoy most playing great jazz to small audiences whom he cam engage with the best and that’s why we have booked him for our Christmas special. This doesn’t mean you’ll hear wall to wall Christmas music, but more that we’ll have a very special band playing great jazz with the occasional tasteful festive piece and hopefully we’ll help get you in the right spirit ready for your own celebrations on 25th December. There will be an all-star lineup for this concert: www.burfordjazz.co.uk
