The next Sunday Lunchtime Jazz presentation at Sunbury Cricket Club, and the final one of the winter before the cricket season starts, is on Sunday 18th March when the Club welcomes back EQUINOX, featuring an emerging star of British jazz, saxophonist Duncan Eagles.
Equinox is a quartet led by drummer Stephane Booroff, who enjoys an eclectic musical life working with ‘70s pop band Edison Lighthouse, as well as appearing with jazz groups in various London venues, and is a regular at the Wednesday jazz shows at the Barley Mow, Shepperton. With Stephane will be Nick Cooper (piano), an Erroll Garner stylist who has played with many well-known names at Ronnie Scott’s, Bull’s Head and all the top London venues, as well as on BBC Radio 2 jazz shows, and Steve Riddle (bass), who has played with the likes of Steve Waterman, Art Themen, Don Weller, Harry Beckett and Bill Le Sage to name a few, and who was in the jazz group which played for six months on the QE2 for its final voyages, as well as on Queen Mary 2
The quartet also features special guest Duncan Eagles, a saxophonist who is a rising star of the jazz world and whose albums have received critical acclaim. Duncan leads his own band Partikel and is resident at London’s Hideaway club. This is a great opportunity to see a leading and innovative personality on the contemporary British jazz scene, and there is a lot of interesting information and videos at www.duncaneagles.com.
The bar opens at 12 noon, and a bistro lunch menu is available from soon after that - the band will be on stage about 1pm.
