After a phenomenal concert with Wynton Marsalis at last year’s Buxton International Festival, it was decided that this band was too good to exist for a one-off appearance. Here it is again, sadly without Wynton, but still propelled by the unstoppable rhythm team of Will Sach (bass) and Will Cleasby (drums) and featuring the superb stylings of Daniel Higham on trombone.

They will be playing Alan’s new arrangements ranging from New Orleans through to swing and mainstream jazz. With nifty section work interspersed with great solos, this is the perfect Festival ensemble.
