Friday 18th February

This Friday Bryan Corbett bring you "Ready For Freddy", a highly skilled and interactive quartet that brings the music of Freddie Hubbard to life in a series of colourful interpretations of some of the trumpeter’s most enduring compositions.
  

The band features renowned Trumpet & Flugelhornist Bryan Corbett, for whom The Brand New Heavies is just one amongst a long list names on his CV from the jazz and commercial world.
  

Co-led by the outstanding bassist Tom Hill (also the voice of ‘Tony the Tiger’ and numerous adverts, computer games and videos), they play an exciting mix of swing and groove celebrating the music of the late great legend Freddie Hubbard, who recorded and played with almost every American jazz star between 1960-90.
  

The Quartet also features the very highly regarded Al Gurr (Rhodes/Piano) and Nick Millward (Drums).
 

This is a “must see” gig. Click here for more info.
