MK11’s StoryVille Jazz Club Presents Alan Barnes – 8.30pm Wednesday, 20th July








Accompanied by The Storyville House Band:
Paul Clark – Tenor Sax
Dick Clarke – Guitar
Andy Faulkner – Double Bass
Neil Wells – Drums

“Barnes, plays music that was radical 50 years ago – hard, urban post-bop – but he infuses it with so much passion and energy you could believe it was minted on the spot, which is always part of the story with jazz.”
John L. Walters, The Guardian.
“Like Peter King, Barnes is steeped in the language of bop, but is such a consummate stylist that his playing tends to buck any argument that his musical approach is conservative or out of step with the times. Whether on alto, baritone or tenor, Barnes’ melodic sense bypasses the usual scale-running clichés that pepper the playing of lesser bop disciples.”

Peter Marsh, BBC Music Review.

“Whatever the instrument, Alan plays it hard and fast and with the sort of inventive flexibility and invention that ensures that he has his own sound and style and could not be easily be confused with another player.”
