A leading saxophonist and a top trombonist will be joining forces with three of Herts Jazz’s most popular musicians in WGC this evening.
The Alex Garnett/Mark Nightingale Quintet plays Herts Jazz Club at the Hawthorne Theatre tonight (Sunday).
Alex has been one of the leading saxophonists in Europe for over two decades, being instantly recognised by his dark, husky sound.
A versatile musician and first-call sideman, he has enjoyed success as both a jazz artist, composer and arranger, and an in-demand session, studio and commercial saxophonist, having racked up countless recording credits along the way.
Mark Nightingale came through the ranks of NYJO, emerging onto the scene with his debut album, Bonestructure, in the late 80s.
Since then he has flourished as a session musician in the London studios and has gained a reputation as one of the top-flight jazz trombonists worldwide.
He can be heard as a featured soloist with ensembles throughout Europe, and is frequently called upon as a sideman in other musicians’ groups.
Backing Alex and Mark will be Leon Greening on piano, Arnie Somogyi on bass and Clark Tracey on drums.
The gig in Screen 2 at the Campus West venue starts at 7.30pm.
Advance tickets cost £3 students, £8 members, £10 concessions and £11 full.
