Henry Lowther - trumpet, Pete Hurt - sax, Barry Green - piano, Dave Green - bass, Paul Clarvis - drums.
We are honoured to be presenting trumpeter Henry Lowther as part of his 75th birthday tour. Henry is a legend of British jazz who has performed in the big bands of John Dankworth, Mike Westbrook, Mike Gibbs, Stan Tracey and Kenny Wheeler. He is one of only two or three players in the world to have played lead trumpet with both Gil Evans and George Russell. As a session musician he has recorded with Elton John, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Van Morrison, and played at the infamous Woodstock Festival back in 1969 with Keef Hartley.
Henry formed the band Still Waters with his friend of many years bassist Dave Green,another major figure in UK jazz who has worked with Stan Tracey, Humphrey Lyttelton, Charlie Watts and many more. On sax is Pete Hurt, who has played with Carla Bley and George Russell, and was also part of Andy Sheppard's Soft On The Inside big band. Pianist Barry Green is a professor at the Guildhall School and was last heard in Bristol with Brigitte Beraha at St George's. Drummer/percussionist Paul Clarvis must be one of the UK's most recorded musicians, having played on numerous major film scores and tv productions.
An incredible line-up for us to have at our small club.
