An acclaimed musician will mark 40 years in the business with a concert in Welwyn Garden City.

Herts Jazz’s gig on Sunday, January 28 will feature one of the club’s very own.

The Clark Tracey Quintet will play the Garden City Cinema from 7.30pm.

Respected drummer Clark will be joined in the Screen 2 auditorium of the CW Entertainment venue for the gig by Alex Ridout on trumpet, Sean Payne on alto, Elliott Sansom on piano and James Owston on bass.

Clark said: “To celebrate my 40th year in jazz, I’ve assembled my latest troupe of outstanding young musicians for 2018.

“Despite their apparent youth, their maturity on their instruments is what has encouraged me to put this particular group together.

“Sean and Alex, from the Purcell School of Music, have become familiar faces to Herts Jazz audiences and I met the other two members through my work at Birmingham Conservatoire.

“This is an exceptional line-up which I look forward to working with over the coming years.”

Advance tickets for Sunday’s gig cost £5 students, £10 members, £12 concessions and £13 full.

Walk-ups on the night are £7 students, £11 members, £14 concessions and £15 full.
