Alan Barnes + 11 (arrangements by Mark Nightingale)

Scarborough Jazz Festival 2019
20-22 September 2019
Friday Evening Session
Alan, who has compered and played at every festival, will be 60 this year.  

To celebrate he has put together the Alan Barnes +11 project.  

Alan says: ‘There was a classic recording in the year I was born, 1959, of Art Pepper +11 featuring Art as the main soloist throughout.  

So I commissioned Mark Nightingale ( a world class trombonist and an amazing arranger) to write 13 charts for 12 piece big band of tunes written in 1959. 

They include Boogie Stop Shuffle (Mingus), Naima (Coltrane), Blowin’ the Blues Away (Silver), Dreamsville (Mancini), As Catch Can (Mulligan), Little Rootie Tootie (Monk), Single Petal of a Rose (Ellington) and A Felicidade (Jobim).

I’m featured on alto and baritone saxes, clarinet and bass clarinet and I’ve managed to get together a dream line-up: Pat White trumpet, James Copus trumpet, Mark Nightingale trombone, Gordon Campbell trombone, on woodwinds: Howard McGill alto, Robert Fowler tenor, Andy Panayi tenor, Mick Foster baritone, Robin Aspland piano, Sam Burgess bass and Matt Skelton drums.’
