BOP along to Campus West tomorrow night (Sunday) when acclaimed drummer Dylan Howe brings his modern jazz four-piece to Welwyn Garden City.
The Dylan Howe Quartet will bring “neo-bop” to Herts Jazz Club’s Sunday night session in the Hawthorne Studio.
To mark his first tour since 2008, Dylan will be playing original ensemble pieces with special arrangements of Blue Note classics, David Bowie’s Berlin period, John Coltrane and beyond.
A highly-rated and versatile drummer, sticksman Dylan leads a Blue Note-styled quartet, often compared to Roy Haynes’ and Elvin Jones’ groups, playing his original compositions coupled with special arrangements and adaptations of choice compositions from different genres.
Regarded as the best neo-bop group in the country, the band features the best young players from the London jazz scene and has often featured as critics’ choice and CD of the week in the broadsheets with hundreds of live performances.
Playing with Dylan on Sunday night will be Brandon Allen on tenor sax, Ross Stanley on piano/synths and Tim Thornton on bass.
Tickets cost £10 if booked online, £12 at the door and £8 for Herts Jazz members.
Book online at www.welhat.gov.uk/cw
And to bring jazz to a wider audience in the borough, tickets cost just £5 for students and under 21s.
