Really looking forward to a short tour next week, with Dan Wood’s ‘Played Twice’. This quintet focuses exclusively on the compositions of Thelonious Monk, and features some fantastic musicians – Dan on piano, George Crowley on tenor, Nick Malcolm on trumpet and Simon Roth on drums.
We’ll be playing at St Ives Jazz Club on Tuesday 4th Feb, The Queen’s Head in Monmouth on the 5th, and the Fringe in Bristol on the 6th. Then back to London on the 7th, for our regular more-or-less monthly gig at Servant jazz Quarters.
Some of my favourite musicians to work with, and some of the greatest tunes ever written – should be fun!
