Alex Garnett & Enrico Tomasso
Alex Garnett has been one of the leading saxophonists in the UK for over two decades, with an instantly recognisable dark and husky sound. A versatile musician, he has enjoyed success as both a jazz artist, composer and arranger, studio session musician and commercial saxophonist, having racked up countless recording credits.
The regular sideman of choice for many visiting American artists, Alex has performed with varied and diverse global names such as Sir John Dankworth, Wynton Marsalis, Pete King, Humphrey Littleton, Scott Hamilton, Van Morrison, Evan Parker and The Rolling Stones.
With an exciting presence and lively personality on stage, Enrico Tomasso is one of the UK's greatest trumpeters and has twice won the British Jazz Awards. Spotted as a rare talent by the great Louis Armstrong in the late 1960's, Enrico's musicianship, anecdotes and vocals capture the excitement of Satchmo. He is a popular figure at European festivals and clubs, leading all-star swinging bands.
If you haven't seen either of these jazz stars before, you are in for a real treat. You can expect a hugely entertaining evening.
