Returning to Marigolds Alan is a prolific international performer, composer, arranger, bandleader and touring soloist. He is best known for his work on clarinet, alto and baritone sax that has few peers. His range and brilliance have made him “first call” for studio and live work and his recorded catalogue is immense whether as leader/co-leader, alone or supporting other artists. The recipient of numerous British Jazz Awards, Alan has played residencies and toured tirelessly, building a warm rapport with audiences making him uniquely popular in British jazz.
Local lad Ted Beament needs no introduction to regular patrons at Marigolds and as space is short……
Simon Thorpe plays in bands across the jazz spectrum as well as leading his own bands with a double bass style that is strong and melodic making him one of the UK's most popular players.
Son of Stan Tracey CBE, Clark has forged his own varied jazz career. After playing in his father's various ensembles Clark has gone on to tour worldwide and record extensively ever since. He has formed many bands with many famous musicians and has freelanced with some of the most important jazz artists both home and abroad. An gifted composer and teacher Clark formed his own record companies, Tentoten Records & Resteamed Records which is devoted to his father’s works. He is one of the sharpest jazz drummers in the country, playing with a keen-eared awareness that can be rare making him one of the most entertaining drummers in the country.
