Sunday Lunchtime Jazz returns to Sunbury Cricket Club with a very special show featuring one of the most illustrious personalities on the British jazz scene, the cornetist, bandleader, broadcaster and author Digby Fairweather.
Digby has been playing jazz at the highest level for 40 years, and has been associated with many major names, as well as leading his own band The Half Dozen.
The late Sir John Dankworth called him “one of our most articulate jazzmen in both his words and his music”, and Jim Simpson, publisher of The Jazz Rag magazine wrote: “One of our great jazzmen, and the UK’s leading man-about jazz, he has assuredly taken the place vacated by Humphrey Lyttelton as Britain’s leading jazz personality”.
There is full information about him at www.digbyfairweather.com. He is appearing with a quartet featuring an important up-and-coming name in British jazz, tenor saxophonist Duncan Eagles, along with Stephane Booroff (drums), Nick Cooper (piano) and Phil Berry (bass).
The show will start at around 1pm. Tickets at £10 are available on the door, and you can reserve them by e-mailing the address below. A lunch menu will be available from about 12.15, at £13.95 for 2 courses or £16.95 for three courses. It is a real privilege to have an artist of Digby’s stature playing in Sunbury, and it will be a great occasion.
