‘Relishing the prospect of Barnes’s casually consummate musicianship, deadpan humour (he could be a comedian, if jazz ever fails him), and indomitable belief in a respected place for the music’s rich history in this eclectic and often forgetful world.’ John Fordham – The Guardian.
ALAN BARNES has the unique gift for combining modern sophistication with the charm of the jazz tradition. Internationally acclaimed and multi award-winning, he plays alto sax, baritone sax and clarinet softly and mesmerisingly to fit the intimate atmosphere of Sladers Yard.
Over the years ALAN BARNES has featured on many jazz recordings and has toured and performed with an astonishing variety of bands and musicians. He has won many British Jazz awards in alto, baritone, clarinet and arranging categories. In 2001 and 2006 Alan received the prestigious BBC Jazz Instrumentalist of the Year award and in November 2003 was made a fellow of the Leeds College of Music where he originally studied music. He has his own music label and is a legend on the jazz scene.
CRAIG MILVERTON is one of Britain’s top jazz pianists. He plays with a whose who of British and International jazz talent including Digby Fairweather, Paul Jones, Julian Marc Stringle, Mark Crooks, Scott Hamilton, Dominic Ashworth and a host of others.
“World class solos… such a gifted all rounder should be cherished by the entire jazz fraternity” Jazz Journal
