Thursday 4th February - 8pm
Stan Sulzmann (tenor) Jim Mullen (guitar) Steve Watts (bass) Tristan Mailliott (drums)
When tenor sax legend Sonny Rollins took a sabbatical from jazz from 1959-61 he re-emerged on the scene with some excellent recordings with guitarist Jim Hall (The Bridge/What's New/The Standard Sonny Rollins). Stan Sulzmann revisits Rollins' comeback years, a period of creative passion, intense improvisation and relaxed, absorbing melodies. Joined by ace guitarist Jim Mullen, these two British jazz stars pay homage to their 60s forebears in an evening of calypso, Latin-tinged tunes, standards and joyful music. After their gig at the 2009 London Jazz Festival, bassist Steve Watts declared, "I've never played so many happy tunes."
