Ben Holder Quartet: “A Tribute to Stephane & Django” Olney Jazz Club 8.00pm 3rd September

During his studies, Ben began listening to
Jazz – classic masters such as
Benny Goodman and Oscar Peterson
and of course the great jazz violinists
including Grappelli, Joe Venuti and the
awe inspiring Stuff Smith.

Later at college he embarked on a detailed analysis of these musicians’ techniques and the way in which they merged this most classical of instruments into the jazz idiom. Ben’s innate sense of swing rhythm (something which often eludes classical players) stems from those early listening sessions – and his various awards bear testimony to his abilities.

A first call jazz violinist for many of the country’s top bands and studios, in tonight’s show Ben is joined by top UK jazz musicians Caley Groves (guitar), Jez Cook (guitar) and Mike Green (bass).
