Rehearsing with Mark Bassey for this Sunday’s concert at The Hassocks reminded me on how truly lucky we are at Straight No Chaser to play with Britain’s top players.
You perhaps remember that Mark and his quintet played with us during the 2015 Brighton Fringe, which was definitely one of our high points. Looking back to last year, the sensational Steve Waterman (trumpet) renewed our previous collaboration and entertained us all playing his own arrangements at another first-rate, opening-night Brighton Fringe performance.
Now, looking ahead to Friday 5 May, world-renowned saxophone/clarinet musician Alan Barnes has kindly agreed to join us to kick-off this year’s Brighton Fringe. Please join us this Sunday with Mark Bassey and book your tickets now to join us with Alan Barnes on Friday 5 May for “Sir Duke: Tribute to Ellington”.
