Benn Clatworthy is a truly impressive modern jazz tenor saxophonist who was rated by the late Ronnie Scott as one of the best UK players that he had heard. Benn has been resident in California since 1980, although he does return to Britain on a regular basis. In the late 80s Benn was recommended to Discovery Records by Horace Silver, resulting in his first album “Thanks Horace.” Since then he has gone on to establish himself as a musician of impressive pedigree and talent, working with the likes of The Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra, Billy Higgins, Cab Calloway, Cedar Walton, Bobby Shew and Cyndi Lauper. Tonight Benn will be performing a programme of classic, post bop jazz standards supported by Jim Blomfield - piano, Ashley John Long - bass and Andy Hague - drums. A powerful and impassioned player this is a gig not to be missed.
