About The Event
Doors 6.30pm music starts at 8pm
A dynamic, unique and cutting edge ensemble of musicians. This is a power packed experience of emotion and excitement based on the repertoire of Duke Ellington and Billy Strayhorn.
At the forefront of jazz in Italy Nico Menci is widely regarded as one of the best swinging pianists in Europe. On a brief tour with his trio he is joined by Christian Brewer on sax. Christian is one of the most lyrical and soulful alto players to have emerged from the UK in recent years. Loved for his melodic playing and pure tone, he has risen to prominence on the British jazz scene. He is now a regular at London’s prestigious Ronnie Scott's Jazz Club and both he and his band are in great demand. Collectively these musicians have played with a vast array of stars including Dizzy Gillespie, Pat Metheny, Lee Konitz & Scott Hamilton.
