Phil Hopkins' Toots Thielmans Tribute
Phil Hopkins

A timely homage to perhaps the greatest jazz chromatic harmonica player who died last year. Think of the Midnight Cowboy theme and you have starting point for this gig.

Phil Hopkins harmonica, Jonathan Gee piano, Martin France ~ drums, John Paricelli guitar, Paul Morgan bass

Phil Hopkins is a harmonica player and percussionist who has performed in many different settings including the Globe (as musical director). He has been the featured harmonica soloist for major West End productions and on many TV, film and recording sessions performing in many different styles.
Phil's brilliant quintet is composed of good friends of the club. We haven't seen Jonathan Gee's fine pianism in far too long. John Paricelli was a Loose Tubes founder. Paul Morgan's phenomenal technique and intonation (and individual sound) is alway welcome. Professor Martin France is our superb drummer for the night.

The concert features music from Toots' collaborations with the greats of Jazz and Latin such as Charlie Parker, Benny Goodman, Quincy Jones, Bill Evans and more.

Damon Brown's International Quintet
Damon Brown

A welcome return to the UK for the man whose hard driving trumpet will surely blow you away. "Fluent, impassioned and technically superb" - Jack Masserick.

Damon Brown trumpet and vocals, Christian Brewer sax, Paul Kirby piano, Sean Pentland bass. Manuel Weyand drums

“Damon Brown is a superb musician with a unique voice on both trumpet and Flugelhorn” - Ian Carr

“a bright, gleaming tone, a superbly poised attack, and a fine rhythmic sense" - John Fordham

Of Christian Brewer, John Fordham says, "almost as agile and fluently expressive as the Charlie Parker disciple Phil Woods on fast pieces, and his ballad playing echoes the raw-nerve soulfulness of the late Art Pepper."

Paul (Scotland), Sean (U.S.A.) and Manuel (Germany) together are a band in their own right, called The Resonance Trio. They first played together when all three became music professors in Seoul, met Damon and recognised a good thing when they saw him, and then encountered Christian and found a further kindred spirit.
