Let Adrian Make Your Day with Clarinet Marmalade!

Adrian Cox (clarinet), Joe Webb (piano), Gethin Jones (drums), Simon Read (double bass).

Adrian is featured in the above Jazz&Jazz YouTubes celebrating the music of Louisiana born clarinetist Edmond Hall based on his 1941 hit album “Profoundly Blue”.
(Filmed at Tad Newton’s Walnut Tree Jazz Club, Blisworth.)

“At the age of 36, Adrian Cox is already an artist with a story to tell. If you were to describe Adrian’s playing in just one word you might say – hot.”

Jazz&Jazz Art …
Flashback to my Jazz&Jazz Portraits

Before filming Adrian, I seized the opportunity to paint my “double take” acrylic portrait of him on stage at the Hemsby Autumn Jazz Parade in
Norfolk circa 2012.

Next I added my Jazz&Jazz Verse
Double Take
Teasing the high notes, caressing the low,
Fingers aflow, instruments aglow,
Adrian beguiles with hypnotic solos.
Sax and clarinet in a virtual duet.

    Dear Peter, Clarinet Marmalade, it was more like Clarinet Madras ! I love Adrian’s playing but this was too fast. Please listen to the original recordings . Tempos are as important as technique plus taste and timing. Was Adrian on speed? Well done for running this website but I must admit I don’t understand your version of art. No offense, best wishes, Eric .

          Hi Peter, I have played with Adrian and a few of the musicians that you portray and I do not remember them looking quite so scary ! Beauty is in the eye of the beholder ,they say.. I liked your Midnight Light but ,I am sorry, the rest leave me cold. It must be because I am an old fart with little artistic qualities. You are doing a good job, stay alive, enjoy yourself it’s later than you think ! Eric.
