Playtime with Alan Benzie on Thursday 12th October 2017

Without doubt one of the brightest talents on the scene, virtuosic pianist Alan Benzie joins Playtime stalwarts Martin Kershaw (reeds), Mario Caribe (bass) and Tom Bancroft (drums) for a joyous tribute to the wonderful music of Jerome Kern.

Expect such classics as 'All The Things You Are', 'The Song Is You', 'Yesterdays' and 'Smoke Gets In Your Eyes', played with passion, energy and that special Playtime twist!

'Benzie’s playing has a hushed yet yearning quality to it; an exquisite touch and elegant virtuosity make for a thoroughly engaging listen” Jazzwise

“Benzie has an orchestrator’s ear for detail in his compositions… His spontaneous creativity impressed even more as improvisations were developed with a clear sense of direction and sustained with inspired phrases” Rob Adams, The Herald

“Most impressive was piano prodigy Alan Benzie… Possessing impeccable technique, and musical imagination, Benzie confirmed his position as a prominent figure in Scotland’s contemporary scene.” The Scotsman
