Of all the ‘honorary’ New Orleans citizens who come from England, multi-instrumentalist Sammy Rimington is surely among the most lyrically musical. Expect to hear his graceful and highly creative brand of New Orleans trad jazz, honed after 50 years playing with Ken Colyer´s Jazzmen in the 1960s and many of the jazz legends in Britain, Europe and America. Sit back and enjoy the master at work.
‘Sammy Rimington's playing demonstrates the clarinet's matchless range of funky virtuosity, which makes jazz's past as real as its future' The New York Times.
The book Sammy Rimington - A life in pictures (2013) will be for sale at the concert.
