This evening is part of the 2019 Mill Hill Music Festival. This all star octet has been performing together for over 25 years. Recently recording the Sherlock Holmes Suite, two sets of songs with lyrics by Alan Plater, and A Jazz Christmas Carol. This hugely versatile line-up presents an stellar evening of jazz. As well as some selections from the Suites, The Alan Barnes Octet will present a short and incomplete history of jazz. Short, because they only have two hours and incomplete because it only includes the band’s favourite bits! From Bix Beiderbecke and Louis Armstrong, through Count Basie, Duke Ellington, Benny Goodman, Charlie Parker, Dizzy Gillespie, Gerry Mulligan to Coltrane and beyond, there will be something for everyone to enjoy. Everyone in the band is a superb soloist and Alan has written an amazing selection of new pieces to let them loose on. The show will, of course, include a lot of anecdotes about the great (and not so great) figures of the music through the years....

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
