Jazz: Benn Clatworthy Quintet

October 19, 2023 @ 8:00 pm - 10:30 pm

From £14

Benn Clatworthy is a truly impressive modern jazz tenor saxophonist who was rated by the late Ronnie Scott as one of the best UK players that he had heard. Although born in London Benn has been resident in California since 1980, but returns to perform in the UK on a regular basis – however, due to the pandemic, this is his first visit to us since 2019.

In the late 80s, Benn was recommended to Discovery Records by Horace Silver, resulting in his first album “Thanks Horace.” Since then he has gone on to establish himself as a musician of impressive pedigree and talent, working with the likes of The Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra, Billy Higgins, Cab Calloway, Cedar Walton, Bobby Shew, and Cyndi Lauper.

Over the past few years, Benn has been leading a sextet called System 6, which includes trumpet legend Ron Stout – Last year the band released their third album Indispensable which you can listen to here Youtube Playlist

On his last visit Benn performed as a quartet, to keep things fresh tonight he appears with a quintet featuring Andy Hague on trumpet, the mighty Jim Blomfield on piano, and top rhythm team Chris Jones – bass and Ryan Thrupp – drums.
