Alan Barnes and David Newton have been playing duets for 42 years. These multiple award winners cover a vast repertoire from Louis Armstrong to Chick Corea. David is one of the greatest solo jazz pianists this country has ever produced and Alan plays multiple reed instruments - all the saxes, clarinet and bass clarinet. They have developed an empathy and telepathic sympathy which only playing together for many years can bring.

The emphasis is on swinging and interplay, swerving from blistering bebop to elegant melodies, flawlessly performed by the two multi-award-winning masters of jazz. Drawing from their vast repertoire and experience, expect a hugely entertaining programme of jazz standards, peppered with consummate deadpan wit and entertaining anecdotes. Barnes and Newton really are a virtuoso partnership!

'Barnes, plays music that was radical 50 years ago . . . but he infuses it with so much passion and energy you could believe it was minted on the spot.' John L. Walters, The Guardian. 'This is assured, beautifully played jazz' Peter Marsh, BBC Music Review
