Leroy Jones Quintet UK Tour Friday, 23 October/Wednesday 11 November

LeroyPoster

“A rare opportunity to see legendary New Orleans trumpeter Leroy Jones joined by Ian Shaw (“Our finest jazz singer” – Time Out) & Joe Stilgoe (star of High Society at the Old Vic in 2015, “truly remarkable” Sir Michael Parkinson), for a wonderful night of music. Expect to hear the swing of New Orleans, all with some fiery soul, bebop & tunes of their own thrown in.”

The Leroy Jones Quintet Tour Information

 

It’s five years since I met Leroy Jones, albeit briefly, in New Orleans at Donna’s Bar during the 2010 French Quarter Festival. It would be wonderful to meet up with him again, even if again only briefly, during his October/November UK Tour. Perhaps at Pizza Express Jazz Club, Dean Street, London, or at The St Albans Arena, St Albans, Hertfordshire.
