Thursday 5th Mar 8pm
£10 concs/£5 students/children
Bobby Wellins (tenor) Don Weller (tenor) David Newton (piano) Arnie Somogyi (bass) Spike Wells (drums)
These two giants of the tenor saxophone have been playing together in this quintet format for twenty five years. Wellins' tenor sound is influenced by Lester Young and Stan Getz, while Weller's sound comes from the more muscular Coleman Hawkins/Sonny Rollins lineage. Their contrasting styles are backed by an excellent trio of long time collaborators, promising an evening of classic straight-ahead jazz.
