Adrian Cox & Joe Webb

Sun 05th Feb. 9:30:pm

Playing Clarinet and Saxophone, Adrian Cox celebrates jazz and swing from the great small band era. Adrian is inspired by greats such as Jonny Hodges, Ed Hall, Barney Bigard, Earl Bostic who all broke away at one time or another to explore the sounds of smaller line ups. One of these was the side by side and back to back sessions that came from Jonny Hodges and longtime band leader Duke Ellington.

Adrian draws a mix of influences into his playing all of which resound as a duo of fire through a programme of jazz and swing standards that are sometimes forgotten. He will be joined onstage by pianist Joe Webb.
