Plymouth Gin presents Adrian Cox Quintet

Mon 28th Aug

Plymouth gin presents an evening of sponsored music with the Adrian Cox Quintet.

Led by Adrian Cox on Clarinet and Saxophone, the Adrian Cox Quartet play a mix of jazz and swing celebrating 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 the quartet fire through a programme of jazz and swing standards that are sometimes forgotten.

The Plymouth Original Strength brand of gin is 41.2% ABV. It is different and slightly less dry than the much more common London style of gin, purportedly due to a higher than usual proportion of root ingredients, which bring a more 'earthy' feel to the gin as well as a softened juniper flavour

A special menu of reduced price £8 cocktails will be available.
