Two of the UK’s leading jazz soloists will be pairing up at the Carlton House Club on Tuesday, September 1st, for a special tribute to one of the most formative jazz line ups of its era – the legendary Mulligan/Brookmeyer Quartet.

Internationally-acclaimed UK jazz trombonist Mark Nightingale, a British Jazz Award winner in both the Rising Star and Trombone categories, is teaming up for this special gig with saxophonist Rob Fowler, who performs regularly around the world, including recent appearances with The Bryan Ferry Orchestra. British Jazz award-winning drummer Steve Brown, and Ronnie Scott’s All-Star bassist Arnie Somogyi make up the quartet.

Together the band will be performing the music of the great baritone saxophonist Gerry Mulligan who played a vital role in the development of modern jazz and contemporary music, and whose quartet with trombonist Bob Brookmeyer made its mark in jazz history. Don’t miss this great show!

Tickets are great value at £10/£8 in advance from Phonebox Magazine, Stanley Court, Olney or the Carlton House Club, High St, Olney 01234 711348
