ACCLAIMED pianist David Newton brings his trio to Welwyn Garden City this evening.

The David Newton Trio will be performing at Herts Jazz Club’s regular Sunday night session at Campus West.

That means the threesome – Newton, Alec Dankworth and Clark Tracey – who recorded Victim of Circumstance on Linn Records, still David’s best-seller, are back in action at Herts Jazz.

Newton is one of the heavyweights of British jazz and a master of the jazz piano.

There is a sophistication about Dave’s playing that runs deep, whether ballads, swingers or flag wavers, he has it all.

He is a fantastic mainstream pianist who plays with wit and grace, as well as swinging like the clappers.

A hugely popular performer at Herts Jazz, David is dripping with awards for best pianist, so organisers are hoping for another huge turnout to hear one of Europe’s best musicians up close for a night of superlative piano.

Joining him will be Alec Dankworth on bass and Herts Jazz’s very own Clark Tracey on drums. The music starts at 7.45pm.

Tickets cost £11 in advance from http://www.hawthornetheatre.co.uk/whatsonstage.html

The price rises to £13 at the door, while club members pay £8.

To bring jazz to a wider audience, tickets cost just £5 for students and under-21s.
