Profoundly Blue celebrates the music of Louisiana born clarinettist Edmond Hall. Ed Hall is most famous for being part of Louis Armstrong’s All Stars and was one of the few clarinettists who could match the power of the Armstrong trumpet.
The show features leading UK clarinet star Adrian Cox along with his fine band featuring Joe Webb (piano), Simon Read (double bass) and Gethin Jones (drums)
The title “Profoundly Blue” comes from the 1941 hit album which featured Edmond Hall along with Meade Lux Lewis and Charlie Christian. Adrian leads the quartet with this as a starting point and continues through a program of lesser known tunes from the albums “ Rumpus on Rampart” and “Petit Fleur”.
We are pretty sure that all who were lucky enough to see Adrian in November will not want to miss this one. Adrian’s love for the clarinet is eminent in his soulful playing as you will hear in this fantastic tribute to one of the true legends of jazz.
Please note that this concert will finish at 10.30 with just one interval.
