An acclaimed guitarist will be performing in Welwyn Garden City this evening (Sunday).
Nigel Price will team up with Dave Green and Clark Tracey at Herts Jazz Club’s Sunday night gig at the Hawthorne Theatre complex in The Campus, WGC.
Price, who led his organ trio to pick up the 2010 Parliamentary Jazz Award for “best jazz ensemble”, is one of the most highly regarded and in demand guitarists on the UK jazz scene today.
He spent three years with UK funk legends the James Taylor Quartet, was placed third in the 2014 British Jazz Awards for “best guitarist” and is also a regular performer at Ronnie Scott’s, where he has played over 400 times.
Turning professional in 1963, Dave Green is widely considered to be this country’s greatest jazz bassist.
His early experience with legends like Coleman Hawkins and Ben Webster has given Dave a firm grounding in jazz roots, yet he has continued to work so prolifically since then because of his innate versatility and a masterful ability to swing.
Drummer Clark Tracey runs Herts Jazz and can be seen and heard regularly at the CW Entertainment venue.
Advance tickets for Sunday night’s concert cost £8 for club members, £10 concessions and £11 full.
Walk-ups on the night are £5 students, £9 members, £12 concessions and £13 full.
