Roger Odell returns to host Jazznights presents!
Not only do we have legends Alan Barnes and Roger Beaujolais (see older posts), but we also have Larraine Odell and The Jazznights Trio to kick off the night.
Larraine Odell began her career with the group CMU and has since performed with Jimpster at Ronnie Scott’s Club, with pianist Steve Lodder, and at numerous jazz festivals.
The Jazznights Trio is formed of Roger Odell, founder member and drummer with Shakatak – the internationally touring and recording jazz-funk group.
On bass, Bernie Hodgkins grew up in a jazz oriented family and has worked with musicians such as Matt Munro and Dickie Valentine.
Finally, Simon Brown is a regular pianist at Jazznights and player in residence at the Norwich Jazz Club. Influenced by the great Nat King Cole, his style reflects that of great pianists such as Herbie Hancock and Chick Corea.
