Don Weller
Don Weller

"Don Weller was and is, among the true originals of British jazz with his cavernous sound and utterly unpredictable turn of phrase" - The Observer

Don Weller sax, Chris Ingham piano, Mick Hutton bass, George Double drums

The young Don played on south London's Dixieland scene, but was also listening to recordings of Ben Webster, John Coltrane, Colman Hawkins and Sonny Rollins.

Don has toured with the Gill Evans orchestra and played with Stan Tracey, Bobby Wellins, Peter King, Alan Barnes, Art Theman, Dick Morrissey and most everyone else at the top of British modern jazz.

His sax sound is relaxed, rich and mellow. It is reminiscent of the sound of Ben Webster.

On piano and drums are Suffolk based musicians Chris Ingham and George Double respectively, both of whom we heard in May's sensational evening with vocalist-trumpeter, Georgina Jackson. On bass is Mick Hutton, a regular at the Fleece, appearing in many bands including with Sarah Moule and Jim Mullen.

Nigel Price Trio + 1
Nigel Price

Nigel brings his exciting trio (plus a surprise) and we may have to reinforce the roof!

Nigel Price guitar, Ross Stanley hammond organ, Matt Home drums, wait and see - Saxophone

This from Sebastian Scotney: "Aha, so this is it, the real thing. This is the stage where every arrangement has been learnt, internalized, completely owned and the sheet music has (just about) disappeared. This is the level of empathy which still allows each band-member the freedom to take the others completely by surprise, deliver the unexpected, and make them smile."

Be prepared for a band who are absolute masters of their instruments, with a wicked sense of humour to leaven the virtuosity and intensity.
