For the last thirteen years I’ve been working with my great friend JIM BAYNE, the Patron of SOFTPOWER EDUCATION; a wonderful charity that builds schools for children with special needs in Uganda. Last year Jim was thinking of bringing his concerts to an end but with the New Year decided to bring them to a new destination: The Jazz Centre UK! So on Saturday 8th October from 2-4pm Jim is bringing all of his favourite musicians (me included) to play a special prestige concert in the Jazz Centre Theatre called ‘FROM DIXIELAND TO SWING’ and his all-star line-up is completed by JULIAN MARC STRINGLE (clarinet/tenor) KAREN SHARP (reeds) IAN BATEMAN (trombone) CRAIG MILVERTON (piano) DAVE GREEN (bass) and MATT HOME (drums). The concert runs from 2-4pm and admission is £15.00. Buy tickets on-line at: thejazzcentreuk.co.uk and do book early as our theatre capacity stops short at 102 seats!!
