Peter King was unable to make the scheduled visit to Jazznights due to illness and we wish him our best good wishes and hopes he gets well soon when his jazznights trip will be rescheduled.

Colin Watling specialises in tenor sax and offers the full gamut of musical styles in his performances from soft and mellow, through to boppy and brassy….. and always in great humour. Colin is rated by many as one of the most exciting tenor saxophonists on the  circuit with his melodic, swinging sound. He is a mainstay of the region’s jazz scene, the Hertfordshire-based tenor sax colossus.

Colin made a superb CD with Roger Odell, Mike Harris and Chris Ingham called We’re All Done.
