International flavour at club’s concert in Welwyn Garden City

It will be two groups for the price of one at a concert taking place in Welwyn Garden City this weekend.
The Vasilis Xenopoulos Quartet and Gilad Atzmon House Ensemble will both play Herts Jazz Club at the Hawthorne Theatre in Welwyn Garden City on Sunday, November 12.
A Herts Jazz spokesman said: “A truly international feast of musicians, both groups are on tour separately at the moment so we thought we’d provide both bands.”
Vasilis is making his debut at the club as a leader.
A precocious tenor player, he will be accompanied by the ubiquitous Nigel Price on guitar.
Completing the quartet are Dario Di Lecce on bass, and Clark Tracey on drums.
Gilad’s set will pay tribute to jazz icon John Coltrane, who left us 50 years ago this year.
Joining him will be Frank Harrison on piano, Yaron Stavi on bass, and Enzo Zirilli on drums.
The gig in Screen 2 of the Garden City City complex starts at 7.30pm.
Each band will play for 75 minutes and the gig will finish at 10.30pm.
Advance tickets cost £3 students, £11 members, £14 concessions and £15 full.
Walk-ups are £5 students, £13 members, £16 concessions and £17 full.
