Sunday 17th November – CHRISTIAN BREWER (sax) will be at Jazznights
“Christian Brewer is the kind of mainstream-to-postbop alto saxophonist who’s easy to take for granted on the UK jazz scene. He’s almost as agile and fluently expressive as the Charlie Parker disciple Phil Woods on fast pieces, and his ballad playing echoes the raw-nerve soulfulness of the late Art Pepper”, John Fordham – The Guardian.
