Back to Basie band

Tickets at various prices available at the New Wolsey Theatre.

Directed by trumpet-player Paul Lacey, Back To Basie features London session musicians and jazz soloists all dedicated to the music of Count Basie's legendary *Swingin' Machine' - straight ahead swing played with dynamics, good humour, and a large dose of the blues!

With Paul Lacey trumpet and conductor, Jacqui Hicks vocals and 17 of the UK's finest instrumentalists.

Launched in 2001 , Back To Basie have since been presenting concerts with accuracy and style throughout Britain and Europe to great reviews.

Back To Basie has been voted Best Big Band in the British Jazz Awards six times - in seven years!

"The music and the magic of Count Basie were back in town!" ~ Sunday Times

This is a community production presented by Fleece Jazz as part of the New Wolsey's annual Open Season, and the Ipswich Jazz Festival.

AND COMING NEXT

Fletch's Brew
Mark Fletcher

Prised away from near residency at Ronnie Scott's to deliver funky jazz originals and Metheny, Brecker and Weather Report classics.

Mark Fletcher drums, Freddie Gavita trumpet, Jim Watson organ, Laurence Cottle bass

A powerful and very jolly way to spend an evening. Drummer Mark Fletcher's powerhouse jazz fusion quartet with Freddie Gravita on trumpet is a regular feature at Ronnie Scott's and greatly impressed Wynton Marsalis: "We haven't had anything like this in New York for over twenty years."
Tonight they will be joined with Jim Watson and Laurence Cottle.

Come and discover the power of funky jazz originals and the music of Pat Metheny, Michael Brecker and Weather Report.
